But there are all kinds of stories; ghost stories, detective stories, love stories.
Some are true, and some are made up.
This is a scene right out of history. You don’t see trains like this any more.
History is about events in the past, facts about things that happened.
History is also a school subject.

  1. Ok, very good about the difference between story and History.I teach History at a nice school. There are a lot of stories to tell students. Sometimes I have to be an actor to tell de stories and other times I have to use maps to teach History. At the end, I have to use stories to teach what I like.That is History.
