Welcome!

Hello. My name is Jonathon Jackson. I am a historian, a journalist, and a storyteller. I use knowledge, creativity, experience, and passion to research and tell stories by making them engaging and relatable.

This website was created in 2012 and includes some of my work dating back to 1998. Back then I had to cut an article out of the newspaper and paste it into a scrapbook if I ever wanted to read it again. Now we can just click a hyperlink or two, and there it is. How times have changed!

Writing has taken me to places and into situations I never dreamed of when I was a kid. I hope reading the stories in my blog will also take you on a journey of sorts. Welcome!
