I’ll start with a little bit of information on myself. I am an athletic training major and I plan to go to physical therapy school after I graduate. I’ll be honest, history has not always been a strong point for me, so I’ll definitely be learning a lot in this class. I do think history is important in many aspects, not just US History, but any type of history. Everyone has a different career path and it’s important to know the history behind what we plan to do in the future. It gives us a better understanding of why we do what we do, or even why we don’t do certain things. US History tells us a lot about where we come from and how beliefs and traditions have changed over time.
