    United Against All Forms of Terror

    United Against All Forms of Terror

    As we looked back on this infamous day, a day of dread, and a day of terror, we must be united against all forms of terror in the world. Wherever there is terror, that should be the target of America and its allies to ending that threat. As a superpower, we must recognize our strength and influence. There is no country like America and America was forged to lead the world. Our founders wanted us to show the world how to govern and to mend our destiny with nations and peoples who need us and respect us. We can no longer be blinded to our influences and we must be careful about who we allied ourselves to. With our alliances, we can free people and with our alliance, we can bound people.

    Heading Back To School? Here's Some History Help...

    Heading Back To School? Here's Some History Help...

    I remember going back to school one year, and I loved history. It was my favourite subject and I had the best teacher. I was always top of the class and never got anything below an A. BUT, then we started doing the Cold War and Stalin and my brain had a bit of a meldown. Of course, I eventually got my head around it all and I was fine, but I looked all over the internet to help me learn extra outside of class. So, I thought I'd share a mini exam question answer that I wrote and got the teacher to check.

    A Fort For The Nation's Capital

    A Fort For The Nation's Capital

    In order to tell the story that shaped the existence of the unincorporated census designated place known as Fort Washington, MD where over 24,000 residents live today and see how this town became the good place to live that we know today, we’ll have to go back into the nation’s history. With everything that happened since the first days of American history, the fort that gave this town its name helped shape the America that we know today. There were many battles and wars that have had at least some connection to this historical place and we’ll walk you through the most important moments of both Fort Washington’s and D.C.’s history.

    Korean War and the change in position of the 38th parallel

    Korean War and the change in position of the 38th parallel

    North Korea is an isolated nation that proclaims its southern neighbor South Korea as its enemy. North Korea blew up its joint liaison office with South Korea on 16 June 2020, in a dramatic and carefully planned display of rancor toward its southern neighbor. Till the end of the Second World War, there was no separate North and South Korea and they were collectively called Korea. In this article, we will see what led to the separation of Korea and the Korean War, which was fought after the separation in detail.

    The Wall

    The Wall

    Imagine. Living in a world where it feels black and white. One side is all-good where everyone lives their lives the way they choose to. On the dark side, people can’t choose their own path. Constant policing of the state strictly monitors it. Everything they want to do is checked upon and anything they do against the state will be found out and are severely punished. Miroslav sees that on the news every day and feels like everyone else; don't get into everyone’s business. He lives in Munich with his family. A recent college graduate, he feels nothing motivates him and just wants to hang around until he can find a job. And he also feels that he, like many others, doesn't want to get into the whole mess that the two German states are conflicting. But one phone call will change all of that.

    Badass Women Who Killed Nazis

    Badass Women Who Killed Nazis

    World War Two was a common part of most history curriculums, but if your school was anything like mine, little to no mention was made of women’s involvement other than their roles as army nurses or factory workers on the home front. But that’s a huge disservice to the remarkable women who did find their way into active, frontline service, and there’s no better time than now to celebrate their achievements.

    Let Slip the Dogs of War

    Let Slip the Dogs of War

    I never understood how books were worked on for several years, even ten, before the author felt it was finished. I never understood it until I realized that the majority of my work presently has been laying in abandoned notebooks or stuck in my head for decades not really knowing what to do with it.
