Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Hi Jessica! Renaissance nut here, altho I read pretty widely. In a pinch I'll even read the toilet-paper wrapper. :D

Hello and welcome to the forum! Though not as amazing as your home, I do live in a place where Civil War history abounds.

Did you see the movie The Conspirator?

I am into 13th c England and France. But I might be headed into a Revolutionary War phase. I used to be obsessed with that period during college.

Hi Jessica - I once took a CIvil War Battlefield trip on a steam boat down the Mississippi and found it quite fascinating. It's an interesting period.
