May / June 2019: Favorite Historical Figures

This month, we invited our writers to tell us about their favorite historical figure. It was quite a choice for many – after all, if you love history, you come across many heroes and heroines to admire! But over the next two months, we will introduce you to some of the chosen ones.

Posts go live every Saturday morning, and certain Wednesday nights! Grab a glass of iced lemonade or iced tea and delve into recent, ancient, and all the history in-between!
