This is a community for everything fascinating that occured before today.

You may post ANYTHING about ANYTHING related to history!

Hindu Gods or shirtwaists or Shakespeare or sex.

Feel free to post any history questions as well with the exception that we won't do your homework for you. If you have a question that's school related, that's ok, but you have to post the question and answer together. If you don't the mods will mock you and lock all your threads inspite of your protests that you aren't fishing for answers. So don't fish. But if you post your own answers with the questions that's cool.

Even if you can't remember what significant event in American history occured in 1865, we won't think you're dumb.

Pictures are especially welcome.

Please be friendly. We have no rules and we don't care about stupid livejournal cuts. If someone asks you though, then please be considerate.
Just post often and comment more often.
