  • Andrew Gehrt studied History at Clemson University, specifically focusing on 20th Century American History but overlapping into any class available that regarded American History. 
    • He first found his passion for history at a very young age in roughly the 4th or 5th grade. His mother bought him a journal (edited for children) from an infantry soldier in WWII that he wasn't able to put down. To this day he credits the vivid scenery in his mind that was created while reading through the words of that soldier with his passion and interest in all things history. 
    • Not only did it light a passion for history within him, it also ignited a passion to show others just how amazing history can be and how captivating it is when seeing the events unfold through the words of those who experienced them.
