Can you tell me what you used for American History for 2 years?

Recommended Posts

We're using and loving Heart of Dakota for US History.  :) It's a two year run through US History, with the first year coupling well with Government, and the second year coupling with Economics.  Of course, you don't have to do it that way, but they do go nicely together.  The book choices are wonderful, and there's a lovely variety to the assignments which makes it a very enjoyable way to learn US History. 


Editing to add:  I believe that My Father's World also has a two year US History with other books added, as well.  Looks like they use the BJU US History text over two years as the spine. 


Best wishes! ;)

We are just finishing up a year of US history reads. DS really liked both great courses we did, and all but the first book.


Great courses:


The Great Debate: Advocates and Opponents of the American Constitution


The Civil War




Before Columbus


Alexander Hamilton (Chernow)

Washington: A Life (Chernow)

Undaunted Courage

Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass (a shorter version)

I'm also hoping to fit a Lincoln biography into the year.
