"History is the witness that testifies to the passing of time; it illuminates reality, vitalizes memory, provides guidance in daily life, and brings us tidings of antiquity" (Marcus Tillius Cicero, 106-43 B.C.). Historical research reconstructs the past, objectively, accurately, and systematically by collecting, evaluating, verifying, and synthesizing evidence to establish facts and reach defensible conclusions.
