Today in History: Its relevance and importance

The history of the world is the memory of the past experience of Homo Sapiensas that experience has been preserved, largely in written records. By “prehistory”, historians mean the recovery of knowledge of the past in an area where no written records exist, or where the writing of a culture is not understood. If we talk about history, many of us would love to know what happened on a particular day, what great man or woman was born or why that day is celebrated, etc. But so very few of us get to see the big picture. There is literally too much information out there, and it would be great if there was an organize way to bring you content that is relevant and significant. The “Today In History” was designed with these crucial points in mind. Launch the application and you see a short narrative of the great events that happened on that day.
This app will let you know what noteworthy things happened on this day, who was born, who died, and what holidays might land on this day as well. It might launch with the current date, but you can easily load any day you want, at any time.
Have a look at some of the features of Today in History:

• Itdoesn’t just have recent events or few events;it has most notable events in all of history, hundreds of entries a day!

• On top of the day’s events we show you the notable figures that were born/died that day, also what holidays and observances happened that day

• Several Wikipedia links for every entry, don’t limit your learning to just the application, take it to the streets.
This is a real honest to goodnessuseful application, especially for getting information on any person or event in human history.

Traditionally, historians have recorded events of the past, either in writing or by passing on an oral tradition, and have attempted to answer historical questions through the study of written documents and oral accounts. In general, the sources of historical knowledge can be separated into three categories: what is written, what is said, and what is physically preserved, and historians often consult all three. Luckily, you’re not a historian, you don’t need first hand information and we’ve taken great care to preserve the accuracy of the information contained within. All in all, Today in History is just great at what it does, and if you love history you won’t be disappointed.
