About the Blog
This blog was started in the spring of 2011, by two amateur historians wishing to express their feelings on everything from Genghis Kahn to The Cold War. This blog will look at world history as well as American history. “History is Bunk” is a a quote by Henry Ford in which he was referring to living in the present, with little regard for the past. It is obviously a tongue-in-cheek reference as the title of this blog.
