    The history quiz was a great thread, lots of fun and nice talk. I'm curious about areas of history you think you'd like to know more about. There is a thread on Mamluk in Egypt.

    For me: all the Edwards and Richards in England.

    The French Revolutions-have they stopped yet?

    Africa

    Don't forget the Henry's!

    For me also, the Caribbean.

    Henry's for sure! As for the Caribbean, well I'm still trying to understand the Candian! :smoke:

    I enjoy all history.

    I know a little about a lot, but not a lot about anything, so I could use more depth on everything.

    Like Korea in 1872, and Kaganovich in the 1930s!

    I love history and I truly believe we can learn a lot from it.

    Asian history has always been an interest of mine. As is the history of US involvement in Asia. It goes further back than most Americans know.

    Of course, since I began reading the Bible a few weeks ago, that has stoked my interest in middle eastern history. And, being from Texas (you know the old saying, "American by birth, but Texan by the grace of God!"), I love the history surrounding Texas.

    European history never has been all that interesting to me. Probably because growing up we always were taught European history but not the history of other parts of the world (not in the same level of depth anyway).

    I know a little about a lot. I'm certified to teach 'social studies' 'american history' and 'geography.' Have endorsements in 'far east and near east studies' 'russian history' 'Western Civilization' and 'Global studies.' Don't you love education?

    I sure do. I just wish I had taken it more seriously as a youngster!

    The query about education is what endorsements they give. I have a lot of freaking hours, but NO ONE could have all those specialties, not enough to have 'mastered.' Now American history, sure. I know more than many.

    I like studying the periods of history that are "quiet". Everybody learns about certain periods of US history, but in those oft ignored times there are some very interesting events that occured!
