If you could go Back in History to meet someone, who would go back to, meet and why?...
What period of time would you be interedted in visiting?
What a wonderful question. It would be three people that I thought of right away--many more, but you didn't ask for that. Harriet Tubman because she was so brave; Victoria Holt because I like the way she write; and, my dad because he died when I was really young and I would just really like to get to know and spend time with him.
First I would want to meet with my mom; she died when I was a kid and I had so many unanswered questions later.
Second I would want to meet Katherine Hepburn; she lived an interesting life for her times and I have often thought I would love to sit on a beach with her and listen for hours.
Third I might want to meet with Thomas Jefferson and ask him about the difficulties surrounding the possibilites of building what he seemed to have hoped would be a just, fair, and decent way of governing a society.
Great question .. I would like to go back to the early 1900s. I read a lot about European History and particularly the Spanish Civil War while in college and I'd like to go back to that time and that place to understand what took place and learn from it.
Ona personal level, I would also like to meet my grandfather because I never met him.
Awesome question! Being a history freak, there are so many time periods that I would love to go back to. First and foremost, ancient Greece. I would love to experience firsthand the culture, art, and to fully understand the mythology.
Secondly, I would love to journey back to prehistoric times with the dinosaurs (but only briefly so I wouldn't get eaten!). The dinosaurs were so advanced and it would be incredible to witness their behavior.
I would also love to have been a fly on the wall in 16th century Italy while Michelangelo sculpted the David and painted the Sistine Chapel. Such a master and prodigy of his craft.
But out of anyone that has ever lived, I would want to meet Abraham Lincoln. If only we could all absorb a portion of his knowledge and character, we would all be much better people.
I'd like to meet my father again. He died when I was 27 years old. We never saw each other eye to eye. I got to talk to him before he passed away. It was the only time I felt connected and I really appreciated him as a person and as a father. Would love to reconnect.
i would like to go to the Very first American Thanksgiving.
Sincepresumabley the whites and the Indians trusted and respected each other. I would like to see how that could have changed the course of history if perpetuated.
I would like to soak up some of the courage needed to suvive those New Engalnd winters without benefit of central heating, running warer and penicillin. The Pilgrims and the Indians must ahve been remarkable people. I would also like to meet with the ancestors who are supposed to have been part of the Maflower entourage. i want to know what these people were like.
I wouldn't go back further than around 1600 for fear of being burned at the stake. One of my favorite hypotheticals is what would you bring back with you to different periods in time, especially if it were a one way trip? Do you bring a machine gun to 1200 AD when swords and shields were the norm? You'd run out of bullets before enemies would run out of bodies. What about a textbook? A history book would be useful. A car wouldn't be, as you wouldn't be able to refine petroleum on your own or get replacement parts when it breaks.
I want to meet Mahatma Ghandi. What a great man. He really had a strong Why and How.
my father who died when l was 12, he was hard working, kind and well respected and still remembered by a lot of people in our community... he took us to fairy land (London) on his days off from work... they were my magic moments in life... and than my mother and brother who died several years back.... (they stood by me through thick waters)... they were my heart and soul)... and l wished they stayed longer ....and miss them soo much.... they kept my family together.... and l did not learn enough from them.....

There are some who prefer to meet straight away and others after they have gotten to know each other over a few days/weeks.Some people say if you meet up right away it doesn't waste time.Do you need a phone call first? lots of online chat and emails?What do you think?
