Our Stories Our History
THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE
The past is inhabited by people, not faceless groups or impersonal trends. Stories are told through human activity. I discovered the magic and meaning of stories as a history teacher and the singular privilege of working at a Texas state archive filled with personal letters written by ordinary folks. Human stories will always be at the heart of history. That is what this website is all about. Please join me as we study the past through the words of those who lived it, one document at a time.
