What if we are obsessed with a historical figure because they're watching us in the after life and are fascinated with us?
i think this is the most beautiful thought and the ardent prayer of all Historians.
And what if their obsessions matches our own?
When Lin Manuel Miranda gets to Heaven, is Alexander Hamilton going to have a musical for Lin?
When Lora Innes of @thedreamercomic gets to the pearly gates, does she get a welcome from Joseph Warren and Knowlton’s Rangers?
And when @ladyhistory wakes up to the Great Mount Vernon in the sky, who will be there to greet her? George Washington with His Captioned Adventures T-Shirt or Teddy Roosevelt handing her a rough rider’s hat?
