So, we’ve been on this American History journey for a year and a half now!! That’s quite a few posts on the topic…I wanted to get all the posts in one place to make it easier for anyone looking for ideas!!
This, by no means, is an exhaustive list! There are still several topics we covered and read a book about but did not do a whole lot else with. There aren’t posts on everything. 🙂 But, this will give you a great start or outline if you are starting American History!
