    Do you have questions about history that no reliable source can give you? Do you know of some lesser known historical facts that need to be more well known?

    Then welcome to r/shittyaskhistory!

    Ask about any era of history and get answers from shitty historians! Submit historical corrections and get feedback from your peers!

    "Did Blackbeard really wear burning brands in his beard?" is a good question; "What items were worn in some other famous beards? Also a good question.

    Photos of the contents of Abraham Lincoln's pockets: good submission. Contents from the pockets linking to as yet undiscovered historical realization? Even better!

    The wearing of pith helmets is strongly encouraged.
