Welcome to The History Exchange.com. I love history, whether studying or researching or just reading something about history I didn't know. So I started collecting different things about history, maps, pictures, etc. But I also needed someplace to store this great information, thus The History Exchange. I get to play with two of the things I like most, web development and history. I hope you find some interesting information here and feel free to send me a note.
