My name is Maddie Shiflett and I am a student at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA. Through UMW, I was supplied with my own website to develop in any direction that I want to take it. The purpose of my blog is to share my exploration of history with others. I have loved history my entire life and plan on pursuing a career that focuses on it. This blog contains pictures of places to which I travel and daily facts, images, and discussions of historical topics. This website also links to a blog for a college class.
