At-Home History – Keeping a Quarantine Journal

            Historians love diaries and journals. Reading first-hand accounts of historical events brings the past sharply into the present, and allows researchers a glimpse into what daily life was like for individuals who lived through history. In the future, historians will likely use journals, music, art, essays, and poetry to better understand how people experienced the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. Imagine a future history student using your art or writing to interpret the events we’re living through right now!
