Getting Back To Blogging

Hi Again Everyone,

Since one of my new year’s resolutions was to start blogging again on a regular basis (and it’s now late February), it’s time to get going!

When I was a history teacher, students would sometimes ask “where do you get all these stories from?” whenever I’d drop in some random bit of trivia about the topic at hand. A good example of this was the name of Teddy Roosevelt’s 2 horses that he took to Cuba during the Spanish-American War, Little Texas and Rain-In-The-Face. The vast majority of these tidbits came from one source: books! For my first blogging project of 2020, I will discuss my 10 favorite books of all time. The first review will go up during the week of 2/23/20. I hope that the posts might inspire you to check some of these books out. Let me know what you think. Thanks!

P.S.: Little Texas is the only horse that Teddy rode into battle in Cuba. Poor Rain-In-The-Face drowned in the confusion of landing the troops off of the Navy ships.
