Today, the History Department at Saint Anselm College is taking a bold step and launching a blog entitled One Thing after Another. As we have pointed out on the “About” page, we intend to post interesting information not only about the department but also about the discipline of history in general. Our goal is to create an online community among prospective students, current students, faculty, alumni, and anybody else who wants to know what is going on in the department. In so doing, we hope to educate and entertain. In future posts, you will see a wide variety of material as we relate what the students and faculty here are up to. So let’s crack a bottle of champagne on the prow of this blog and get going.
