-something about the War of 1812, focusing on a more social view, particularly looking at boarder conflicts, conflicting loyalties, immigrants, natives, etc.
-a history of europe during and a few hundred years previous to 1000 CE, with an annoying and largely uninteresting focus on religious millenarianism that keeps popping up in between the interesting bits.
-something about Caesar, only started it a little.
-a book about the Oka rebellion, a Mohawk rebellion in canada in the '90's i believe. not far in this either.
-a large book giving a general overview of explorers through history/societies.
... and a bunch of half-started or almost-done books which are put to the side for now that i'll get back to... like one about the conquest of ancient Mexico by Cortes, a book on the black plague (almost done, probably wont finish, the author started saying things i suspect are dubious), some book of poetry (omg, not history???)... and a bunch of other things that i might get back into at one point or another.
