Shot Glass of History Blog

At Shot Glass of History we hope to enjoy a strong and refreshing dose of historical rethinking. Abandoning the modern hagiography that divides history into saints and devils, and beyond the political right/left division, we want to seriously analyze events and characters within their own historical context. History is far more complex and interesting than the bumper sticker version so often taught in school.
