History...Giveaway

Our family is a family who enjoys history,
 it seems to be "most" of our children's favorite subject.
Which makes it very easy to teach. Once our older children got into middle/high school they began to really dig into history, they passed Arthur and I up on several topics. We didn't mind, as it's wonderful to see your children growing and learning...and teaching the parents a thing or two along the way :)
 
 
 
The Sinking of 
  The Titanic....
a wonderful bit of history in this book:)

This is Amanda's favorite book,
her research/love of the Titanic is part of reason
 for our trip to the Titanic Museum.
 
*Originally written within months of the Titanic disaster, this is the true account — no Hollywood spin — of the men who gave up their lives for the ship's women and children. And of special significance, it is told by people who knew the survivors.




As much as we all love to read, we enjoy DVD's as well.



The League of Grateful Sons

*More than 406,000 American soldiers died during the Second World War, leaving an estimated 183,000 children fatherless. Hundreds of thousands of other U.S. troops did return, but many never connected with their children. However, within the ranks of these survivors was a remarkable collection of men who made it their life mission to speak the providences of God and the meaning of manhood to the boys who would one day fill their shoes. Through wartime letters and present-day pilgrimages to the bloody battlefields of their youth, the ancient warriors have spoken. Their thankful children rise to honor and surpass their legacy. They are “The League of Grateful Sons.”

I'm into the Titanic too. At least different story accounts from it or books on it. I know it was a terrible disaster, but I'm interested in it. I liked the post about Amanda's birthday theme.
