We are a collective of history writers who look upon the policies and behavior of President Trump and his administration with deep concern and trepidation.

In addition to our personal beliefs and political sentiments, our apprehensions are also tied to our study and research of history and the oft-stated but undeniable knowledge that without an understanding of history, we are doomed to repeat it.

Our goal in creating and contributing to this blog is twofold:

  1. To resist the policies and actions of President Trump and his administration that we view as, among other things, infringing on human rights, violating the Constitution of the United States of America, and contradicting the principles on which our country was founded.
  2. Doing the above by contextualizing what is currently happening at the highest levels of our government with our knowledge of historical people and events across all time periods and nations. In the process, we hope to create a contemporaneous record of events as they happen.
