Welcome to the Havoc, an assortment of discombobulated thoughts and writings on stuff.

If you find it entertaining or useful, that's awesome. Hopefully you enjoy the site. I am constantly fine tuning things and adding stuff, so I don't imagine any individual visit will be the same - or if it is, oh well. Keep checking back often!

Within the confines of history, however – I use these slogans (especially on the site) for a different reason. In recent times, it has been far to easy to brush history off to the side. Some people even think history is far too violent, or has no reason to be further learned or examined for whatever reason. History isn’t always pretty. History isn’t always kind. History is full of heinous things, atrocities, madness, insanity, political incorrectness, and obscenities. That does not mean that you cherry pick pieces of history …
I intend to have friends, family, local organizations, and fellow historians (I’ve said that several times now, sorry) have access. So just make sure you give me a justification when you send your request. In time I might make a more formal method of requesting, but since we’re in the infancy stage, I am not too worried. Don’t worry, there’s no pay wall or anything (it’s free), it just requires a justification for an account.
