Historical Poems

Recommended Posts

Did Byron write many history poems?


The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere is by Longfellow. Ella Frances Lynch writes quite a bit about Longfellow in her book Educating the Child at Home. He wrote many history poems that are not just about a historical event or person but teach history.


Jessica, thanks for the links!

Thank you ladies!


I don't remember any previous threads on this topic.


I don't know of any educators other than Ella Frances Lynch that use poems like this. Have I missed anything that anyone here knows about? There are probably bits here and there in the vintage TM's that I didn't fully recognize.
