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.
