The Consequences of Ignoring History:
The Consequences of Ignoring History: Lessons from the "Lost Cause"
By Stanley Bowling, Supervisor, Content Operations
A very dear friend recently said she did not need to know anything about history since it did not impact her daily life. As much as I respect her, I would disagree with that statement. History impacts our lives everyday and the consequences of the past can bless or plague us today, and those that come after us. Having so much history preserved in the ProQuest databases helps to bring that truth out in bold ways that often easily relate to events today.
