Our World Digest

A Growing Repository of Information on
Places, People, and Events
Which Have Shaped our Understanding of the World



The single most influential aspect of our world is that which has gone before. People, nations, and successions of events shape and mold the decisions and direction of today. The past is the key to understanding the present. Delve with us into the depths of the past and explore the infinite intricacies which have woven the living tapestry of who we are.

History Digest


We cannot know who we are unless we identify our surroundings. We cannot know our neighbor unless we are acquainted with his environment. Geography is a crucial element of knowledge woefully neglected in our day. The study of maps and topography and the location of things is essential to the understanding of the world around us.

Geography Digest


‘Junk Science’ is the Trojan Horse of modernity. The current concepts of our surroundings and the building blocks of nature and her fickle ways are all perceived through the lens of scientific analysis. History has proven science to be a process of elimination; guesses more often proven wrong than correct, guiding the quest to ultimate truth.

Featured Story


For Love of Country

What caused a large portion of tenured US military officers to resign their commissions and fight against the very institution to which they once belonged? Many would point an accusing finger to the scourge of slavery and the pernicious desire to keep other men in bondage. But is this even a reasonable assumption? Did these men fight for bondage or for liberty? Memoirs and accounts of the day give a decidedly different reason for what many of their contemporaries labeled treason; reasons left undisputed and often corroborated by their opponents.

Persistent revisionism has painted a very inaccurate picture of 19th century America and the ultimate causes of disunion and war.

Many have tried to solve this onerous problem. All have failed. What is the underlying complexity of the situation and how is it that this little patch of real estate, comparatively inconsequential in size to other areas of the globe, is the nexus of significant worldwide issues.
