Key History Facts “History Will be Kind to Me For I Intend to Write It” – Winston Churchill

That’s not our approach – we aim to present key history facts in concise, thought-provoking, lists so you learn more by reading less. With over 7 billion humans on planet Earth “new” history is being made as I type, every second passing into history – look out, it’s already behind you! The ever increasing pace of technological change and scientific breakthroughs makes it feel like history is speeding up. With the benefit of hindsight it’s easier to tell which events made history revealing the key history facts that couldn’t be left out of our lists. We connect those dots together into general knowledge history lists and leave other websites to try and record everything, which is also important to help us understand the future. History gives us a sense of belonging and context to our lives, as Michael Crichton said:

If You Don’t Know History, You Don’t Know Anything. You’re a Leaf That Doesn’t Know It’s Part of a Tree
