Free History Studies: Stories of Great Americans

Stories of Great Americans for Little Americans by Edward Eggleston is a wonderful introduction to history for the early reader using short anecdotal biographies of famous American explorers, inventors, scientists, and statesmen.

There are 33 weeks of lessons — enough for a standard school year with a little wiggle room for holidays and other activities.
