Comment: I know not most people are the least bit interested in the topics presented on this site. But I don't really do this for wide appeal. I do this for myself as it brings great joy to research and find the exact spot where such fascinating history took place. I recognize that most people today are only into "the now" and could care less about historical events but I believe these people miss out on much history has to offer to their intellect. I am not implying that people should share the same interests I do, not at all. But I see a great travesty that such intellectual endeavors bring little more than "meh" from so many and I find that sad.
