My name is Mark Mears, and as the site declares, I love History!  I am not a professional historian; I am an avid amateur.  If I am not listening to an audio book or reading a book about history, most evenings find me scanning sites to see what occurred on “this date in history.” Every chance I get, I am traveling to experience historical sites.

For the last several years I have been posting a “Today in History” post on my personal Facebook page.  Family and friends have encouraged me for some time to take it up a notch and begin posting a blog that more people could see…and hopefully enjoy.  With work, family and more work finding the time has been difficult.  Now I am finally making it happen.

I truly value our rich history.  I hope readers will find value in sharing my ramblings.
