February is noted for the observance of history, most notably pertaining to American presidents and African-American history.
Of course, Valentine's Day falls smack in the middle of the month, but that is very appropriate. Because that is a holiday reserved for love, and most historians are in love with the past.
Or, more appropriately, they are in love with how the past has shaped our future.
And some of those in love with history have publicly displayed their affection.
