“We study history so that we can understand our own place in the world.  We study history so that we can understand the world around us.

We study history so that we will be wise and not foolish, so that we will be knowledgeable and not ignorant.  We study history so that we can fully understand what it means to be human regardless of time or place.

 

We study “this stuff” because we are human beings and “this stuff” is our story.  Why do we have to study history?  Because we are human beings – that’s why."
