Summary:Age Range: 10 and up (approximately, younger children many enjoy aspects with adult supervision)
This ad-sponsored website offers a free American History Calendar that highlights people and events of historic importance every day of the year. You can use it to springboard discussions and further learning
Description:When you get to the site you'll see the current week's historic birthdays and events, along with an introduction and information about what you'll find at the site. Use the menu at the top of the page to access:

*People Calendar - Features the birthdays of people of historic importance to American history including:

Signers of the Declaration of Independence
U.S. Presidents
U.S. Vice Presidents
First Ladies
Revolutionary People
1812 War People
Civil War People

*Events Calendar - Highlights the anniversary date of historic events that occurred during:

Revolution Era
State Ratifications
1812 War Events
Civil War Events
World War II Events

Click on either calendar and a new page opens that displays the current month's calendar. Birthdays and/or events are highlighted on it. Place your cursor over or click on those of interest to see more information, as well as a Google map indicating the location where the event took place. It's enough to spark a short conversation or it may inspire you to research the person or event at your leisure.

The calendar is incomplete. It's a work-in-progress and you are welcome to help improve the calendar by contributing information to it (see details at site).

The calendar is fully functional and free to site visitors. Again, this is an ad-supported site. Ads are randomly generated and change. Parents, AS ALWAYS, should preview the site and supervise exploration of it.

Note: There is an option to "subscribe" to the calendar which allows you to download it, customize it, and synchronize it with other tech tools, calendars, and applications. It didn't work properly when I visited and tried it, so it's not clear to me if the subscription is free (and if so, if it requires registration), or if it's fee-based.

By the way, if you like this calendar, don't miss my free Homefires' Learning Calendar that provides descriptions of world-wide historic events and anniversaries along with recommendations for books, CDs, DVDs, and links to websites that will help you further learning. The calendar changes on a monthly basis at Homefires' website.

You may also want to check out my eBook Preschool Learning Calendar that highlights over 190 historic, interesting, and light-hearted events along with fun activities to further learning with young children and their families.

Oh! And I hope you know about my free Carschooling History Calendar that is delivered by email every month via my Carschooling eNewsletter. To subscribe (it's free) visit
