  • I found your website earlier this year and cannot thank the editors and contributors enough for such wonderful content! I have always loved American history, but this site brings so much more depth and life to the times, event, and people of America’s founding era.

    I cannot thank you enough for putting forward scholarly content that goes deeper into the who, what, why, where and how of American history without being dry, dull and boring.
