"It’s the stories of all of us together that make the story of America. Our nation’s story is so much more than a timeline in a history book."
This statement is so true. I hated history in school, but as I began learning with our children, a whole new world opened up. Our children each have a passion for history and various eras that has turned into a life-long learning adventure.
Join guest, Gail Masinda of History Heights as she shares her love of stories, true stories of real American families.
History Heights takes a deep dive into remarkable stories of United States History in a way that is engaging and fun for the students while providing convenience and value for parents.
The Love of a Good Story
All Families Have Stories
A Presentation of World War I
A Passion for History
It’s the stories of all of us together that make the story of America. Our nation’s story is so much more than a timeline in a history book. It is the combined stories of millions of families over hundreds of years and thousands of miles. Some of the topics I write about in the History Heights eBooks are inspired by stories I have heard or read about in my own family. Others come from events or items I find intriguing, sometimes while in pursuit of something else entirely. Sometimes, it’s a combination of both. While researching my grandmother’s brother, Harry, I found he was transported to France aboard the USS Mongolia. Until I began this research I had no idea of the incredibly important role that vessel played in World War I. It was front page news in its day, but I had never heard of it before. The story of the USS Mongolia became an entire eBook.
And that, my friends, is the beauty of history. All of the pieces fit together like a jigsaw puzzle to tell the amazing story that belongs to each and every one of us.
