History Intrigue for October
By Rick Morris
Welcome to our third version of this new feature in The FDH Lounge, entitled History Intrigue. We’re going to be flagging interesting-looking tidbits of a historical level. While part of this is just going to come from general web surfing, many links each time are courtesy of Real Clear History, who does a great job aggregating for this topic just like all the others in the Real Clear brand.
We always work to be class acts in our own aggregation, so we’ll always give a mention of the site involved in the link.
