An Outstanding Historian Lost

David McCullough wrote some amazing historical pieces. If you haven’t read The Great Bridge, about the building of the Brooklyn Bridge, I highly recommend it. You need to be stuck inside for about a month to get through it, but it is fascinating in it’s detail and story telling.

Also 1776, one of the first history books a I read as an adult, and his historical telling of The Wright Brothers, were books I found to be quite enjoyable. I have not read his John Adams or Harry Truman biographies, but I may have to do so.

I know some of us have a hard time agreeing with each other on things, but I’m optimistic there will be little push back on this. (But I could be wrong. 😇)
