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 began writing "Today in History" nearly six years ago, as sort of a self-guided history course. 

I told myself I’d write 365, the leap year changed that to 366. As I write this, I believe there are over 600.

I make every effort to get my facts straight, but I'm as good at being wrong as the next guy.

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