While I was born in a small town in Saskatchewan, then grew up in Saskatoon, I have travelled a great deal living at one point for four years in Italy.  I have visited many of the places discussed in these courses, seeing for example where Joan of Arc was captured by the Burgundians, where Louis XVI was executed and where Napoleon Bonaparte is buried.  I look to bring this to my teaching, for the more real an event becomes to you, the more you can speak about it with a knowledge that shows significance, and evidences analysis.  In the end, you do not simply see what it meant to be a leader in the past, but what it means to become one in the present.
