LOCAL HISTORY

 

The term local history is a misleading one. To say that general history is the history of larger events and more important personages, is only to beg the question. The great event was a very local event where it happened, and the great personage is always a very familiar experience to his valet (or those who knew him before he became great).  The city directory, we must admit, seems decidedly local history, but if we had such a city directory of ancient Thebes, we would have a more human and valuable knowledge of Egyptian civilization than all the monuments of Egypt afford.   We are never conscious of history in the making; we can never tell the ultimate significance of an event apparently local.  Thus all history proves to be local history.
