Cape Cod Curmudgeon

I'm not a "Historian". I'm a husband, a father, a son and a grandfather. A history geek and sometimes curmudgeon, who still likes to learn new things. I started "Today in History" back in 2013, thinking I’d learn a thing or two. I told myself I’d publish 365. The leap year changed that to 366. As I write this, I‘m closing in on a thousand.

I do it because I want to & I make every effort to get my facts straight, but I'm as good at being wrong, as anybody else.

I offer these "Today in History" stories in hopes that you'll enjoy reading them, as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them.

Thanks for coming along for the ride.
