I Take History With My Coffee


When I was a young child, I remember going to Gettysburg National Military Park for the first time.  I recall seeing a man on horseback dressed as a Union cavalry officer.  I thought to myself, wow, what a cool job that person has.   Today, I am an interpretive guide for a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
I have always had a lifelong passion for history.  I graduated in 1984 from the University of Michigan with a BA in History.  I am a historian, a writer, an educator, and an interpretive guide.  The purpose of this blog is to share that passion not only for history itself but the art and science of doing the historian's craft.
