How is history related to geography and politics?

Well in history it can be linked to politics because peopple such as JFK he was president and look at the history behind that. also geography is a huge part in history because you need to know where things happened the same example again JFK got assassinated in Dallas, texas. therfore politics and geography are related to history. hope this helps. On the contrary, I think the question should be answered thus, of course geography is related to both history and politics, because where ever in the world you live and work, will have different politics and history. Both past and present acts by governments, religion or peoples create history....China has a different philosophy to USA and the USA has a different history etc to other countries. You cannot generalise, and certainly the sad death of JFK has nothing to do with geography, all to do with politics and is now history.
