America celebrates important historical events with fun celebrations across the country. Sometimes these events are studied in classrooms, but after that, we sometimes tend to forget the actual dates of these events.
On this page, you will find a historical events timeline from early American history through the end of the Civil War. These events shaped America and should be remembered. Further on down the page, you'll find a Historical Events calendar that has some current historical events, re-enactments and celebrations (you can add your important historical events to the calendar by using the form at the bottom of this page!).
If you enjoy participating or watching historical re-enactments, maybe you'd like to take up a new hobby that would enable you to learn more about history? And maybe just find some historical treasures along the way! Metal detecting and treasure hunting is a great way to discover more about the history around you. The website Metal Detecting - Ghost Towns of the East is a great place to start learning more about this exciting hobby. Through his website, videos, ebooks and television show, Frank will help you learn about this fun and exciting hobby!
The Gettysburg Festival is a great place to see some great music, theater, and historical events. Held this year (2012) on June 18th through the 17th, you are sure to have fun and learn lots there!
From Independence day celebrations to Constitution day activities, there are many historical events and celebrations available for the perfect long weekend or your next vacation. This page also serves as a list of important historical events and celebrations that visitors to American History Fun Facts have submitted. It will eventually include a list of events and activities scheduled all across the United States.
If you know of an event, or are involved in planning an event or celebration relating to United States history, please use the form at the bottom of this page to submit it. Your event will become a post on the American History Fun Facts blog, and will also become it's own page on this website.
Historical events and the celebrations of those events allow us to learn more about American history and celebrate the historical events of our past. Many schools offer special programs about historical dates, events and American holidays.
When listing your event or celebration, please be sure to include the name, date and place. If you have photos of past events, they can be posted also. Tell us a little about your event, and be sure to mention your website address and e-mail address, if you want my visitors to be able to contact you.
If you are sharing information about Civil War reenactments, please use the form on our Civil War Reenactments page to share those details.
Are you involved with an important historical event celebration or festival? If you or your group have something planned for a federal holiday, history month observance, or any type of important historical event celebration, I'd love to share it with my visitors!
Post the details of your event here. Be sure to include your website and/or e-mail address for people to contact you, if you want to. Pictures from past events are also welcome!
Your event details will become a page on this website, and will also be posted on our facebook page and twitter account. Please use 300-400 words to describe your event.
