I love history!  My favorite aspect of it is the political intrigue, I guess....especially around WWII when countries were making secret alliances, so if a country declared war against another, a third country would declare war against the first. 
 
I also enjoy Russian history as well.
 
The American Revolution and the American Civil War were also interesting.  I think the thing I hated the most about American history was the fact that they always seemed to rehash the same information over and over again, and as you say, making it such a bore.  I also thought they could have related what was going on in the US to what was going on in the world more, as wars here weren't necessarily fought only here.  US history is generally taught in and of itself when it was actually interrelated to what was happening in Europe.  And Canada is generally forgotten when dealing with American history.  And what of the history of the Mayans, the Incans, and the Aztec?  It's history that's close to the US but not dealt with.

I love reading about the Vietnam war.  Seems like the history books when I was in school just skimmed over the subject so I enjoy watching documentaries on it and reading about it.  And believe me, I haven't had a history teacher my whole high school life make any subject in history not boring and my youngest son in high school complains about it the most due to it being boring because the teachers make it that way.

I know not everyone has even heard of it or watches bible history but that is what I watch when I can catch it on tbn....they just had a episode tracing back the history of the galgotha and how they theorize that it got it's name going to the battle of david and goliath...anyway that's the kind of history I watch..

I like watching this type of thing on the History Channel, too, or Discovery. I realize that a lot of it is just theory and hypothesizing and conjecture, but since there are those who they make their living on this kind of history, they know more about it than I do. What I don't like though, is the people who just ignore or say what these experts say is totally wrong just because it doesn't fit with their narrow beliefs.

I agree; I think the revolutionary war was a very interesting period of time and I love learning about the important documents of our country, such as the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.

Just following on from that answer, I forgot to say: When I was younger I wanted to be a paelietologist or an archeologist and I thought that dinosaurs were the coolest thing until I turned 8 or around that time. All the stories I wrote at school were about dinosaurs and how a mamusaurus once ate a T-Rex back in the Jurassic Period. One of my best presents ever was this thing called Dig-A-Dinosaur. You had to find these glowinthedrk bones in a blk of clay and make a dinosaur out of them! Kwl as!

A lot of people my age think history is boring, but quite frankly, I'm not like a lot of people my age. I think history is VERY fascinating, and social studies is my favorite subject in school. My favorite period of history is the Golden Age of Piracy (1690 - 1720). It sounds weird, but it really is very interesting.
