Eminent Historians

May 2024
1min read

In the beginning, noble Greeks and Romans

Stylists made history a high literary art

In America a century ago, historians were best sellers

Some were explorers in the field… Some recluses in the study

Some let the facts alone speak… Some relied on interpretation

Others were recruits from literature

Or themselves makers of history

We hope you enjoy our work.
