History is not the past. History is what we know about the past. What we know about the past comes from what are called primary sources. Those writings from the time/event we are trying to understand which come from people who took part or witnessed what happened.
People can (and do) publish anything they want about history, but if what they say isn't backed up by the primary sources, it's better known as fiction.
What we try to do as History Fanatics is present history in a different format. When you read about an event, you get one perspective. When you see it as we do it, or participate with us, you get a different perspective.
No matter the era, we can all learn from history. Our presentations and displays are safe for the whole family to experience!
At History Fanatics, we don't change or rewrite history. Instead, we incorporate as much of the original as we can into a family friend;y form. We show the good and the bad. It is history in its true form.
Our commitment and our pledge is educating others about the past. Now, more than ever, this is a crucial role each of us must do.
Art teaches us to dream. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics give us the ability to act on our dreams. Included in those studies are the Arts.
Art is more than finger-painting or singing. Art is mathematics set in motion. Painting is mathematics in color. Music is mathematics in sound. Engineering is math with purpose. Architecture is engineering with heart.
We must not lose our dreams!
Come join us complete our mission in keeping our history from disappearing. Our motto is Keeping History Alive! History is all around us in both word and deed. We must Keep History Alive or it is lost forever!
