...and be safe, and just observe what was going on, where would you go? History is very interesting to me, and is constantly changing and evolving, so I thought I’d ask.
i know it’s a pretty generic answer, but I’d go back to WWII, most likely. Such a horrible and sad time. I used to run a blog about it, and even with the extensive material there is about the war, it barely scratches the surface of all that went on. Or prehistory. I would love to see the long forgotten animals that were lost to the sands of time.

I'd want to go to one of Franz Liszt's concerts from when he toured Europe in the late 1830s and early 1840s!! I'd also want to see the première of the opera Der Freischütz, and see Cicero give a speech (maybe one of the Catilinarians).
My great granddad fled from Lithuania during the 2nd world war when he was only 10 with his little sister in tow. They eventually managed to get to the UK all on their own. I'd love to be able to know more about their journey in more detail so I'd go where ever they were!
Honestly. I'm not that religious, but I'd go way back to when Jesus was a young man with his disciples and observe them. I'm mostly curious as to what was Jesus like? Did the miracles happen? Would I see them for miracles or would they seem like a hoax to me?

Like others, I'd like to see my ancestors (Irish, German/Dutch, Italian, and Algonquin). I'd also like to see the American Revolution, of how the birth of the USA came to be, and to see the Founding Fathers.

There's too much history to choose from!
I guess I'd like to see the heart of Rome in its heyday, as well as Celtic Britain and Roman Gaul. Most of all, I'd want to explore the time from ~1763-1814ish, there was a lot going on in the world at that time. I would especially love to experience the American Revolution first hand, talk to Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, and witness the tumultuous new life and politics of America in the 1780s and '90s when the country was brand new and the American Experiment was just starting out.

Choice one; Henry the VIII and Elizabeth I's reign, and the time in between. Observe whether or not Anne Bolyen was innocent, whether or not E 1 was virgin, see how far the whole 'Tom Seymour' thing went with her. Oh and then come back and tell everyone where Anne was buried cause we're all confused about that.
Choice two; reign of akhenaten and try and observe how the change in religion worked and whether or not Tutenkahmen was murdered or w/e. Or might just go to Hapshetsut and stay till Akhenaten...who knows.
Choice three; The sentimental choice; go back to my great grandfather during the war and just watch what he went through, then be there beside my grandfather as he suffered through his dad's post-war alcoholism. Kind of feel like neither of them should've had to have done that alone.
