Yeah, I know, I'm trying to sell you something. I want to sell you on the idea that you have capabilities and talents you may have been suppressing all your life, that today - after reading any one of my chapters - you can do great things like those people did at Gettysburg when they were under the gun (so to speak). My point: you don't have to be "under the gun" to perform great deeds.
Paul Lloyd Hemphill, a life-long marketing specialist, is frustrated with how American history is taught in our schools - through boring textbooks and too many uncommitted teachers. On his own initiative, he chose the battle of Gettysburg as the vehicle to change how American history is taught. Convinced he needed to entertain students in order for them to be receptive to learning history, he employs the digital media they prefer as a learning tool: video and audio. These stories reveal an unexpected bonus which historians are not obliged to discuss: the ingredients of success that are a proven part of your DNA. This blog complements his digital approach since so many adults still treasure reading the written word.
