Guerber Story of the Great Republic [We continue to plug through US History with Mrs. Schott and memorize the order in which states were admitted along with vital president information.

The Reign of Terror

It took a while, but we sat thru all of the Kahn Academy presentations about the French Revolution.

We really enjoyed reading The Story of Nelson by Sellar.  The name Horatio will always mean something to us. (This reading source and Nelson image came from our Heritage History British Empire cd.)

You really should READ about travel to London with Kids. We did and wrote about it here.
