I have been going back through some old emails and notes for the site, and I came across an email from Larry Schweikart. For those that don’t know who he is, he is the author of A Patriot’s History of the United States and a few other similar titles. I have never read his books, but I do own a couple of them. Too many books, never enough time.
Anyway, for those that homeschool, or those that just like good American history resources, I wanted to point you in his direction.
Schweikart’s website that focuses on his books, www.patriotshistoryusa.com, has map links, bonus materials not found in the books, tests, and some study guides.
According to Schweikart, The Classical Historian, has created an entire curriculum based upon his books.
I did mention this last year. Schweikart has a documentary, Rockin’ the Wall that focuses on how rock’n’roll helped tear down the Berlin Wall. In addition, he is trying to turn A Patriot’s History of the United States into video form. Here is a preview:
