Island's gonna sink - History Theresa Tammone MadameT I'm jumping on this bandwagon!! I've always loved history, but back in school (no comments!) alot of my friends hated it and couldn't understand why we needed to study it. If they would take the major events of history that are currently studied and then add how it affected the local community, I'm sure alot more kids would be interested. For instance, why not include The Conference house and Richmondtown when studying the Revolutionary War? A number of my friends are teachers and I'm going to mention this and get their view on the whys and wherefors.
