Why study history?
 Believe it or not you use history all the time. However,
  most history you use is personal history.
 i.e. You touching fire and/or hot surfaces can burn you.
  Therefore you don’ touch a lit fire place and you use
  oven mitts when handling a pan from the oven.
 History classes at school focus on studying formal
  history.
 The purpose of formal history is to learn the important
  values and lessons that should be inherited by each
  generation.
 i.e. themes of Democracy, social equality, integrity of
  beliefs, appreciation, awareness, civic virtues
 It will make you more informed when you vote!
