About Us

It’s nice to meet you.

Historical Spotlight highlights pivotal events in America’s past that have had a profound affect on the development of our country. We explore philosophical, economic and political issues seldom covered in traditional textbooks.

What We're All About

We produce historical videos to bring history to life! 

These documentaries examine pivotal events in America’s past through a free market perspective.


“History is a gallery of pictures in which there are few originals and many copies.”

Alexis de Tocqueville
Our Vision

Who We Are

"It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows."

Hi, I’m John. I’m 65 years young.

I have a passion for American history and have produced several youtube videos to bring our history to life.

When I’m not blogging, working out, or researching I take daily walks with my lovely wife, Barbara. 

Barbara and I have four great adult children, and we homeschooled them all.

If you’ve read this far, thank you! I truly appreciate each and every one of you who reads my articles, watch the videos, and those who take the time to comment, subscribe, and follow me on social media.

Soli Deo Gloria!
