comment Rommel's letter to his wife from November 16, 1942
I would say that this is a request for a canonical reference, which is within the scope of H:SE. OP has done the preliminary research, and what he is asking is part of the normal practice of history.

comment Rename 'Byzantine Empire' the Eastern Roman Empire, or Eastern Rome?
This question cannot be answered through historical sources and methods. This isn't a question, but a call to action, which is quite out of scope for this forum.

comment Wendell Phillips Quote that “Revolutions Never Go Backwards”
Or consider Napoleon's grant of human rights to the Jews and the Hatians, and then prompt reversal of those policies. Or the English revolution, after which they called "backsies", or the Soviet revolution, or the US revolution followed by the alienation and sedition acts, or.... Like I said, nice hypothesis . . . be a real pity if someone were to test it.

comment Why did leaders not respect diseases in their campaigns?
The French reinforcement of Haiti was absolutely done with awareness of and respect for the impact of disease. On the other hand, Napoleon was also distracted by other demands for troops. I don't understand how example #3 relates to your thesis?

comment What did 'regular' medieval people think about royalty?
I'm afraid the question is too broad to be meaningful. Hundreds of countries, hundreds of years, perhaps a thousand monarchs and a million commoners. Some they loved, some they hated. Isn't there a rhetorical fallacy when you overgeneralize? Perhaps the best generalization is the Russian proverb, "God Bless the Czar and keep him far from me",

comment I am trying to debunk this article on the stab-in-the-back myth
What is it that you want to know? Can you focus the question? Questions where the title clearly indicates what you want to know tend to get answers.

comment Death by candle
I'm going to suggest that any question tagged with "Ancient history", "Early medieval" and "early modern" is ipso facto too broad. This question covers 5000 years of history.

comment When studying about the history of, say, Philippines, is it generally better to prioritize the works of Filipino Historians than foreign historians?
Is this an example of the "I think X, amiright" question from How to Ask?

comment What day and year was the first public & general confession held in the Church of England?
The [Act of Supremacy](britainexpress.com/History/tudor/act-of-supremacy.htm0w as passed in 1534, not 1532. The text is available from that link and it does not mention confession. Please do preliminary research before asking.

comment What is the origin of language?
Although we entertain some anthropology questions here, I think this one is out of scope; the answer is not available through historical sources and methods. Fascinating question, but not, fundamentally a historical question.

comment Did Abraham Lincoln kill the man who murdered his mother?
Did you do any preliminary research? Lincoln's mother died from drinking bad milk. I don't know if Lincoln killed the cow.
