Tumblr Teaches History

I reblog this for the anon who once sent me an ask telling me there was no such thing as a history fandom on tumblr.

I can’t decide which is the funniest, the Austrian army fighting itself, or the Irish joke.  And before you hate me, I will tell you that the Irish portion of my family was the most recent portion of my family to come to this country, in 1860, so we know from no potatoes.

And the Scots portion came over in 1745 knowing one day they would get another bite at the English, and they did.  And the Pennsylvania Dutch came over around that time, for bigger farms and religious freedom.  I’m glad they can’t tune in to television and radio now.

And our Onondaga portion met the boats, not happily.

History: you either laugh or you cry.

I know my being happy is an anomaly. No one knows me better than you. But I can say without avoiding your gaze, without crossing my fingers behind my back; or the other things I do when speaking untruthfully—I am happy. I know the rain does not discriminate between day or night and either will hold its own light and dark—but now, at this very moment, I feel like I am the sun. And I know in my heart, I will always look upon this time—not without a sense of melancholy—that it was the happiest in my life.
