One thought on “Dipping into our Archives

  • Since history draws upon seeing where you’ve been to see where you may be going, this is a clever article of history. Noting the quality and breadth of subject matter points out at least two things to me about this journal: the quality of the historical research/writing and the fascinating selection of subject matter, I don’t think your mission statement then and as it applies today could have been better formulated: “PASSIONATE, CREATIVE AND SMART CONTENT INTENDED TO MAKE HISTORY MORE PALATABLE.” ’nuff said.
