easy to forget the personalities, lifestyles, events
and epoch deeds which forged, not only America, but
modern civilization as we know it. The study of

and acknowledgement of the people, places and processes
responsible for the lives we enjoy today. This

are active public speakers and teachers in their
local communities. We lay a strong foundation

unique history and great destiny.

the cumulative product of hundreds of thousands

of countless town, family and era historians associated
