Video guest post: Hayreddin Barbarossa, The King of Pirates

Here’s another entry in the collaboration between the Help Desk and, my friend, The History Guy.
He has a degree in history. He likes history. And if you like history too, this is the video for you!



Thanks for watching and reading!


Video guest post: Mary Edwards Walker by the History Guy

I have decided to partner up with another blogger to expand the content of The Help Desk.

I will continue to post the book reviews that The Help Desk is known for, but this blogging partnership will take some of the pressure off of my frantic reading schedule. It takes time to read and review books properly. With my new 40 hour a week job, I don’t have the time to devote to it as I used to.

The History Guy is a dear friend of mine who makes five minute videos about history.

His educational videos are well-researched and fun: a perfect fit for The Help Desk. If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll notice that I love quirky non-fiction. These are right up my alley.

I’ve learned a lot from this YouTuber and I hope that you do too.

My first pick from his lengthy catalog of videos is about Mary Edwards Walker, the only woman to receive the Medal of Honor. She was an abolitionist, surgeon and truly ahead of her time.

Without further ado, I present, “Five Minutes of History: Mary Edwards Walker,” by the History Guy.

And, as always, thanks for reading!
