The Bacon Academy: Footnotes For The 1619 Project

Joel B. Levine MD

For those of us that desire to know what really happened, to be humbled by getting as close to truth as diligence permits , the muse of history beckons. When pursued with dispassion, rummaging into days and people , as they were, bends time to our will. By reading widely we find that being wrong is balm for the intellectual soul. Being wrong is progress, being dead wrong is just as good as it gets.
