history is about wars and rebellions and invasions.People have done some frightful things to one another in the past.They have enslaved,tortured and killed others for religious or racial reasons and fought several terrible wars.History helps us to understand more about the world today and answer terrible wars.it shows us why some countries are poor and some rich,and perhaps the way to make the poorer ones richer.it helps us to understand how present problems between nations have arisen from the past mistakes.
History is important in order to prevent the mistakes of the past and learn from them to better our futures.
