Chronology

Take the time to read about the hows, whens, and whys of history. There's a ton of surprises just around the bend. Did you know the Fax Machine was actually invented before 1900, but nobody cared to use it, ... kinda just like today. Did you know that at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition, the exhibits included the Statue of Liberty's torch and arm, Alexander Graham Bell and the phone, plus Edison and the phonograph.

America's Best History

We'll start out with pre-Revolution history, acknowledging that the 1490's were not the true start, but was, for the most part, the beginning of its recorded history, for both good and bad, then follow the decades to the beginning of the nation through today.

USA Historic Parks and Sites

Go visit the places where history happened. It's a lot more interesting than you think and includes such a variety of history from politics to how the United States and nature merged to form the union we have today. Our national parks and historic sites tell that story, including the well known parks of Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon to lesser known spotlights, our Monthly feature, around every corner of the USA.

Review - "Chronology" offers a fascinating series of snapshots throughout American history, including things I really haven't thought about, such as...what was life like here before the European explorers showed up? Some of the chapters are essays about specific topics or time periods, and others are the actual text of documents from our history. Even if you think you know American history, I'll bet you'll find something you didn't know, or an aspect you never thought about!"

Book Reviews

Great Book for the Context of History - I'd say this would be great for anyone from age 12 and up who needs to know the context of history or the history buff who wants to be reminded where and when things happened. Recommended.

Very Good Complilation - This was a great refresher for someone who was very big into my history lessons. Great for quizzing your kids.
