Ben Franklin, John Adams & Thomas Jefferson
Writing the Declaration of Independence
by Jean Leon Gerome Ferris
United States history is filled with fun facts that you may never have learned in school. This site is meant to provide a unique way to learn about American history... my goal is to make it fun learning about our Founding Fathers, Presidents and other important men, women and historical events. Look around... you should find plenty to keep you interested and coming back!
It really wasn't until recently that I have become fascinated with my American history and fun, interesting facts about the United States of America. I emphasize the word my because as an American, it is mine - and may be yours! And history often repeats itself.
Just like in current times, there are often interesting tidbits that happen that you might never have known happened, but make the past more "real" for you once you learn them! The men and women in the early years had some of the same desires, needs and hopes that you and I have. Elections were vicious, just like they can be today. Congress argued, Presidents went up and down in the polls. Things really haven't changed all that much.
...at least we don't use duels to settle our differences anymore!
The early years surrounding the American Revolution and the founding of America really intrigues me...
Signing of the Declaration of Independence
by John Trumbull
I love discovering new, interesting history trivia and fun facts about America.
for instance, the fact that
John Adams and Thomas Jefferson
died on the same day - July 4, 1826. Exactly 50 years
after the Declaration of Independence was adopted.
If I learned that in school, I forgot about it, and I think it's interesting!
Let's take a break for a little silliness...
Now... back to more serious stuff (not too serious, though!)...
I do not pretend to be a historian...but I do have a passion for U.S. history and American politics, and I hope to pass on some fun facts that you will enjoy.
