ATTENTION HISTORY NERDS: Gather ’round, because you’re in for a treat. Just when you thought memes had died and gone to internet heaven, an entirely new genre has risen from the ashes à la Fawkes. As you click through the slideshow, let this mere fact: that there are people out there churning out historical memes over blood, sweat, and tears for the sole purpose of our entertainment and nerdly satisfaction—restore your faith in humanity. And in the event that you’re not a history nerd yet, brace yourself, because there's a 78% chance you're about to become one.
