Every genealogists finds themselves searching for military records; whether it is the civil war or the revolutionary war, etc. However, there are some of us that feel "pulled" to a particular era. What about the Battle of Hastings (1066) or the hundred years war? Are we drawn to those times because we are truly engrossed in our hobby or do we just love history? Maybe you just watched the "Outlander" series, "The White Queen" series, or the movie "Timeline" and realized how fascinating those eras were. Either way, those types of entertainment can provide insight for genealogist. Not everything is fictional. Believe it or not, those ideas had to come from someone... somewhere.
We would love to hear your input, what battle or time era are you drawn to? and why?
