“History is written by the victors.” -Everyone You Ever Met
It's trite, but kinda true. Well, we're here to change that, and hopefully enlighten and entertain along the way. We're no boring, stuffy history class - think of us more like history taught in a bar, a bar you bring your own booze to and enter through your phone. Please, please tip your bartenders generously. They appreciate it.
Seriously, history is often presented as something that's a burden to both understand and learn and too often the stories behind historical events get obscured by dry data and statistics...it turns out when you dig beneath the surface, history is strange, surprising, gruesome and weird. We have a shovel, oh boy do we, and often we don't know when to put it down. We turned over some real dirt with this baby. Read on for some shocking but true tales from the past and bottoms up!
