    Re: History and Historians

    Greg, et al:

    Riding herd on this forum is simply to great a task for one man. Provided that people who would cut and paste firmly grasp the notion of "is a kind of" as opposed to "is a part of", I'll gladly accept any help offered.




    Cheers,

    Re: History and Historians

    I would like to say that while I enjoy this forum immensely, the "History" topic has proven very interesting. I particularly enjoy the lively debate. Being from Kentucky, I thought the early threads were heading toward a feud! Most importantly, gaining different perspectives on the same issue is fascinating. It is amazing how a group can "witness" an event and yet draw very different conclusions. As long as someone can support a position with well-thought out, logical reasoning, I will always hear them out. I may not agree, but it does at least challenge me to look at my views from another perspective. Keep up the good work!

    Greg,
    What you are saying is that primary source documentation is much more important than secondary sources. That is why I prefer primary sources and I have never seen a letter or other document that states "I came here to distill because of the rebellion in Pennsylvania".
