The Minimum Wage Historian has passed on into History.

12471625_10153777297041181_378341096629698476_oZachary Hill passed away suddenly and unexpectedly the morning of January 15th, 2016. He leaves behind his sweet young bride of almost a year, Mackenzie Hadlow Hill.
Zack is a gentle soul with big heart. He was an Artist, a Historian, a Teacher, a two tour Combat Veteran, and a prolific Writer. He was a true Warrior Poet that always sought peace. He loved to play games and spending time with his family and friends.
Zack was also a Traveler. He adventured in other countries. He served his two year mission for his Church in Mexico and he taught English in Japan, and spent time in Italy. He served his Country in the darkest places in Iraq. Now he’s gone to the Undiscovered Country. While he’s away from us for the time being, we know we will see him again.
We believe that he too is grieving for having to leave behind his friends, his family and his new bride. He would not have wanted to leave her now. But he was called back to his celestial home far too early. Our Father in Heaven has a plan for Zack, as he does for all of us. Things happen for a reason and it’s our struggle to make sense of it in this mortal world… through our limited and narrow optics that are full of confusion, distraction, and pain. We take comfort that through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we can be together forever.
Instead of flowers, please go to and buy Zachary Hill’s books and cherish his legacy. Through his writing, Zack will always be remembered.
Donations to help support his bride can be made here.

While Zack is gone… His legacy will continue.  As will Minimum Wage Historian, though differently.  His brothers, Josh and myself, George, will continue this site, but we do not have Zack’s unique style.  We will strive to cover the topics that he would have liked.

    A sad tragedy. I learned of Zach’s passing on Larry Correia’s blog. Larry wrote an amazing eulogy for Zach, part of which inspired me on Amazon to buy his Sins of Prometheus, which I;m enjoying now. It is well done indeed! I will heed Larry’s promise of a ‘book bomb’ for Zach’s last novel which, I understand, is in final prep. Looking forward to that. And, hope to find some of his other works. RIP Zach. Condolences to all the family and friends.

  4. How very sad. I came across this site based on Larry Correia and have read everything I could find on it. This is a lesser place with his passing.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Zack had a unique ability to mix history and pop culture to make us remember that history happened to people, not the one dimensional images we learned in school. We can only hope that he has passed on to greater tasks in a better place
