Learning about history is learning about our heritage. It connects us from the present to the past.
We have a lot of evidence that the human in the past have done these have done that. History is history but if the history of human doesn't begin there will be no human raise like nowadays. History is showing about the legend, religious, culture... etc. that is important for you to understand and showing the path that the legend walk through, the legend do, and show about what the legend sacrifice to get what they want. it also show about the some wrong path that you shouldn't go through. if you know a lot of history (not only your country history but every country)it can also help you in your life in a different way.
You all know who Hitler is, right? If you don't, you shouldn't be on the Internet. Hitler is known for obvious reasons, but comparing Hitler and Napoleon Bonaparte, the made the exact same mistakes, and they tried to take over too much land. Just goes to show how the past can still be similar to mare recent times. - Turkeyasylum
There are also a lot of similarities between historical events which happen at different points in the past. For example, the ancient Egyptian kings claimed to be gods, and the more recent absolute monarchs in Europe claimed to be chosen to rule by God.
It makes sense and it is a simple subject to learn for all ages
