Those who do not understand the mistakes made in the past, are doomed to repeat them, and those who do understand the good decisions of the past, are compelled to repeat them.

History is also important in understanding religion, as the two are intrinsically intertwined. You cannot understand one without understanding the other.

Sometimes mistakes are made in the past. Good thing to know, so we can stay away from the actions that led to the mistake.
Also, It is a great way to Honor those who have truly helped others (Or your country) in History.
It is a way to remember the Origin of a group, Person, or Nation.
Many things make History important, it is just good to know at times.

History can bring us joy and pride. It can also teach us not to make the same mistakes!

You can't really understand anything that happens in the world without knowing what led to it, what came before. History is probably the single most important subject you'll ever study, because it teaches you about cause and effect, and about the forces that have shaped our lives today, and will continue to shape them tomorrow. Thanks for asking such a good question!

Finally, someone else who looks at history as cause and effect instead of simply names dates and places

Because otherwise mistakes are repeated just we are repeating the mistakes other countries have made now! Socialism has never worked in all of history and yet that is what the democrats are forcing on the USA now!
