Orphan of The Chesapeake
I am an orphan of the Chesapeake Bay. I was built in 1847 to help defend the city of Baltimore against the potential of war and invasion. I was designed by someone named Brevet-Colonel Robert E. Lee. Apparently, he was a big deal at the time. Before I was completed Colonel, Lee went on to become Superintendent of the United States Military Academy at West Point and then the head entire US Army. With all those new titles and responsibilities, I was forgotten about.
Are history books primary sources if they weren't written during the subject's lifetime?
When studying history, it's important to use primary sources to learn more about the subject. If a source is written by an eyewitness, or someone who experienced something firsthand, then it's likely a better source than a book that was published later and relies on past accounts. Why is that?

Archaeologists have discovered at least twenty burial complexes - they may be related to the legend of King Arthur!
According to a new study, tombs discovered in the British Isles belonged to British rulers, their families, and powerful individuals. Researchers believe they date from the so-called Dark Ages, which lasted from the late fifth century until the mid-tenth century AD.
Terrorism can strike at anytime and anywhere; it is a mechanism that people use as a fear tactic to influence the way that others will think. Terrorists believe that nothing else will work or that all roads have led to the point that violence is the only answer. They use their methods when it comes to changing political views or laws when they feel that their religion is in danger or when they do not share the same beliefs like the ones around them. However, one does not become a terrorist overnight; it is a slow descent into the void of terrorism, through a process that has come to be called radicalization. Many psychological and behavioral factors have been researched to find the steps that cause one to radicalization; in this paper, two of those radicalization models, Moghaddam’s Staircase to Terrorism and Borum’s Pathway, will be compared to aid in finally entering and understanding the mind of a terrorist.
