Welcome to Great War Memorial Archive! My name is Oscar Gordon and I hope to be your one-stop source for technology throughout history. You might be wondering why I’ve chosen such a peculiar name as “Great War Memorial Archive.” My family has descended from brave soldiers who had fought in the very first American war: the Revolutionary War. Their actions have been held in high-esteem by my family for years. I hope to continue their legacy by moving from history to the future, and what the future has in store for us.

As you may have guessed, I’m a historian. I graduated from Columbia University several decades ago with a master’s degree in American studies. I love to look back and see what the people before me have accomplished. America’s history is very important, and I think we should all know how we got where we are today. It’s incredible that in only several hundred years, we’ve become one of the largest world powers. Our influence can be seen all over the world. However, I think looking to the future is just as important as analyzing the past. History tends to repeat itself, after all. But, thanks to modern tech, we have easier access to invaluable resources, ideas, and forms of communication.

The Advancement of Humanity and Technology

War is never a pleasant occurrence. It brings tragedy and hardship to the lives of those it affects. However, war also helps advance humanity as a species. If it weren’t for the Revolutionary War, for example, America would not be the great country it is today. That also means we probably wouldn’t have the incredible modern innovations that we’re so accustomed to, such as light bulbs, iPhones, and other electronic devices. My goal is to explore these new forms of technology and how they influence our current society. In addition, I’d like to look at future technological possibilities, as well.
