I can’t lie, one of the historical figures I am most interested in is Ronald Reagan. Something about his communication abilities that seemed to create this sense of comfort, are very intriguing to look into, regardless of political identity. He was an interesting historical figure, seeing how his acting skills translated into the way that he chose to govern the country.
Anywho, 9 years ago Ronald Reagan passed away. Needless to say he left a powerful impact on this country as it seems that all Republican Party candidates for president try to compare themselves to him (though I’m not sure that people want to repeat his Cold War foreign policy, since that conflict ended years ago).
Hopefully the Gipper is still resting in peace. This Reckless Historian hopes to continue to research more about the life of this man.
