About Oddly Historical:
History is a subject with a bad reputation for being mind-numbingly boring. Who doesn’t remember suffering through high school history class: the dates, the dry facts, the lectures that gave a glimpse of just how long eternity really is? Most people graduate from the school system with a handful of dates and random factoids memorized, but little else. And that’s a shame, because history is so vibrant and fascinating, so chock full of wonderful, interesting, and just plain odd happenings that a person can’t help but get hooked. From the merely odd to the downright macabre and everywhere in between, Oddly Historical is a site devoted to unearthing these gems of weirdness from the dust bin of history and displaying them for all to see.
