    Yeah, there is, not by chance, a “story” in “history”. It needs to be told, by somebody who knows how to do that. Learning facts from old books, the studying, is one part, weaving them into a whole, the telling, the other.

      That’s the biggest gripe I have with how history was taught. A lot was focused on the who what when but the why, and how it all build up to the world today in a big picture sense was often lacking.
