This website is intended to be an additional resource for students, teachers, and parents who are trying to make sense of U.S. history. It is not intended to replace reading your textbook, doing assigned homework, or going to class (listen to your teacher – he or she is trying to help you!!). The vast majority of the content is on 1820 – the present. My hope is that you will find lots of help here in your journey to fully understanding the past. Happy studying!
