We're Back

After a little summer hiatus, the show returns with an episode today about that classic topic -- Don't Know Much About History. The recent National Educational Assessment Program report created a lot of noise in the media about what high school and other age kids don't know. The reality is, this is an unfortunate American history constant.

Dating back to the New York Times' front-page story in April 1943, just about every decade we have seen a national survey that proves we don't know our own history.

Kyle and I bounce it around today, and also discuss a couple of recent Presidential candidate/hopefuls who had a little trouble with their historical facts.

Long Time, No Post

Apologies to followers, we've also not had a lot of episodes in the past few weeks with travel for both myself and Kyle. However, I promise four new episodes are in the hopper for the next few weeks of summer.

Meanwhile, take a look at this cross post from Bill's personal blog on new media and communications that relates to both Civil War history and the talk he is giving on June 16 in Van Buren.
