Historic events and the people that lived through them have always fascinated me. Here at History Detours we love finding the links between the dates and the names. We believe the cliche that understanding the past is the key to understanding your future. That when you begin to see who these fabled people are, you start to find this commonality. We hope that in some way we can share in chasing after this connection and inspire people to a better understanding of themselves and their world.

After all we are presently living in someone’s history.

Here on this site we invite you to join us as we chase after the intriguing stories of our past.
