Day by Day History…

Today I stumbled across a Twitter feed from @patriotcast.  They tweet out day by day history of the American Revolution–really neat.  It made me think about our perspective on history.  Reading a diary, journal or even an old newspaper can make us think about history in a more mundane, day-to-day way.  Those who fought in the Revolution didn’t know what the outcome would be anymore than we know how the Gulf oil spill will ultimately turn out.  So enjoy your own unique history every day!
