Why do we study History?
We study History today to learn about certain things that occurred in the past. History is important because it tells you when things happened, how they happened, and what contributed to it. Without History, we wouldn’t be organized and people would have no idea of events that occurred before our time. You can use History as a guideline to relate things to your own personal experiences and everyday life.

If people did not know about history, the world would clueless and uneducated. History is a valuable part of time, place, and importance. If we didn’t have History, we could not use past events to build new things that would be successful. Many things that we do today are based on things we did in the past.

History can teach us about our government, society, and people. For government, it can teach us how a court system is ran, how a president makes decisions, enforcing laws process, how to work with different countries, ethnicities, and religions, and also geography; knowing where places are and where they’re located. In society, we learn from our mistakes and apply them to our lives to create better living circumstances and to interact with one another peacefully. Knowing history, these things can be easy to understand.

The main part of History is to educate us about the past. We learn from things that occurred before our time and apply them to our lives to understand how the world operates. History is a true meaning of itself. You can learn from history and educate others. Things that happened in the past can lay foundations for what can happen now and in the future.
