Carnival of history #28 is up...

at Patahistory. There's some deep stuff here, and I am enjoying it immensely. The host is currently living in heaven Oklahoma, lucky dog, even if it ISN'T Tulsa....

But there's a really cool post about the origins of Superman, what the term "Enlightenment really means, and our colleague elementaryhistoryteacher has a post featured entitled, "Can an obscure president become a lesson in character?" from American Presidents blog.

Then the History Carnival has now turned me toward this: Geoffrey Chaucer hath a blog. Oh my Lord. Did I ever tell you that I took a class in Middle English? Professor Handelmann, where art thou? This is a scream!

The history Geek in me is all excited!
