    So, who's familiar with history outside of the US? How about Latin America? I'm a second-year history major and to this point that's where I'm most versed in, although I'm adequate with European history (1300-1800ish). Fun thing about Latin American history is it is taught using a very politically-centered approach with so much discussion focused on its cultural ties to the US because of relentless intervention dating back to Columbus' days. Probably one of the most unappreciated histories in the world.

      Right, right, now I remember. It was the guy who didn't kill Johnson. Did a pretty sweet report on that some time ago.

      And we all know that most badass guy was John Jay.

            Hamilton did more for the country than Jefferson. Don't get me wrong I admire what Jefferson did but he was somewhat of a hypocrite and I'm not even talking about the slavery issue. He was 100% against big government but then he used all the governments money for the Louisiana Purchase. I'm glad he did but for someone who preached what he did it didn't make much sense. I also didn't like the smear campaign he used against Washington after he left his cabinet.

                I took a history course on Colonial Latin America last semester, it was really interesting. I would have taken the follow up Modern Latin America course, but it was filed under the same category and I think I need 4 of them, I'm double majoring with history and polisci.

                  I took the required Latin America course in college but the professor was terrible. Dry as sandpaper, no wit, got off on tangents easily, etc... His tests were brutal as well. I didn't do well in the class.

                      I had a black friend that was related to him. Had all kinds of letters and whatnot dated back in those days.

                        Is it true the reason black people dominate most professional sports is because slave owners selectively bred the biggest and strongest slaves?

                          I always wondered that myself.
