A Few Words About Us

Historyman is on the trail of our American history through a number of projects including the Historyman Podcast, Historyman blog, and Historyman Comics. These projects seek to illustrate and educate future generations about the challenges of the past, the hard-fought victories, and the visionary hopes of those who went before us. Perhaps, even, they speak volumes to our own experiences and attitudes of freedom in the present day. Join us as we walk in the footsteps of heroes and proclaim, Freedom Reigns!
