I have explained in the past how my boys really enjoy history. They could learn and read about it each and every day and I doubt ever tire of it.
I recently found this site and wanted to share it because after having researched throughout the site, it really has a great deal to offer in the areas of early exploration and early American history.
This site has actual accounts of early explorers and documents and books for further in-depth learning about a particular date in history or person.
The historical accounts and books go right up to approximately the mid 1800's. There is lots of unique information here for anyone who has a passion for history~
