Noble Notes on Famous Folks
Richard Edward Noble
Noble Notes on Famous Folks is, first of all, a book of historical essays. This is to say that they contain the opinions, insights, and interpretations of the author along with historical facts, quotes and situations. This is not a history book. It is a book about history.
Most of the sources are stated in the individual note. All these notes were originally written for my own edification and to assist my memory. You might look at this work as my homeschooled college diary or study notes.
I've included in this volume a variety of ancient and modern characters ranging from Constantine to Bill Clinton. Some are treated humorously, some satirically and some seriously.
