In case you haven’t noticed I’ve added a new link. The link will take you to a history site called On This Day. It has all sorts of History stuff, including quotes, events, birthdays. Just the kind of thing an Historian would get a kick out of. Happy birthday Caesar. What a great human. His campaign against the Gauls killed an estimated one million people and forced another million into slavery. The Battle of Alesia is a classic in creative thinking, however, for when the besiegers become besieged. Feel free to enjoy the various links or offer suggestions to other places.
