Confessions of a Drunk Historian

When it comes to history, I’ll not be writing about battles. I’m a fan of peoples’ history, or as it might be viewed, drunk history. It’s more about what might have been and could have been and what happened between the sheets and to peoples’ minds. What social forces were shaping us? What peer pressures did we face? Who might we have dared to love or to have loved in secret? After all, a lot of what’s made it into history books and the American psyche is really just PR, as shown in this clip of Buffalo Bill.
