I'm Kate Kracklin and I love history. It's pretty cool to see what God has done throughout history. You can even find that most prophecies in the Bible have been full filled; some are still to come. Writing is also very fun--especially combining history with made up characters and making historical fiction.
I especially like (in more or less chronological order) beginning times, the Crucifiction and following two centuries, the Vikings/Early English history, the Reformation, the re-discovery of America (the Vikings beat Columbus to it!), the French Revolution and following uprisings, the Civil War (a mix of south and north), World War One, World War Two, and Vietnam War.And navel/warfare history and Asian history (which I haven't done much of yet) and literature history.
Soon, there may be a new blog author who is almost good enough to be a professional history teacher. His ego is disgusting, but his information priceless (so don't flatter him if you don't want exploded ego all over, but do listen to him).
