New to the blog?  Looking for a post about a specific character, historical event, or theme?  We’ve sorted some of the most popular blog posts by category below to help you get started. Happy hunting!

Of course, many characters and subjects are mentioned in passing throughout the blog, as opposed to having an entire post revolve around them.  For the most thorough search, we recommend using the Search Bar (located in the right sidebar underneath the TURN to a Historian logo).

You could also browse by tags, since we extensively tag each post here at the blog. You can do this a number of ways:

  • Click on a tag you see at the bottom of any post to see ALL posts with that tag.
  • Surf through our Tag Cloud near the bottom of the right sidebar. (Unfortunately, a WordPress bug means that some of our tags are getting left out of our Tag Cloud, so it’s rather incomplete at the moment.)
  • Manually enter tags in your browser’s address bar. Paste into your browser address bar, followed by the tag you want to search for (use dashes as a substitute for spaces). For example, if you wanted to see every post tagged with “Caleb Brewster,” enter into your browser’s address bar.

Finally, if you don’t see a topic that you want to read about, let us know via the “Ask a Question” page!
