World and Modern US History (1865-Present)

World and Modern US History curriculum is always discounted at Schoolhouse Publishing!

World and US History is, to me, absolutely fascinating and exciting (probably my favorite historical time period). The story of the fight for freedom all over the world, the invention and technological wonders, the World Wars of our grandparents, and civil rights - what an exciting time period to study!  History should be like a good movie - full of suspense and excitement, wonderful lessons learned, inspiring heroes, and pointing us back to God and His sovereignty.  It is, after all, His story.  Keep your homeschool history alive and exciting.  This section of our website is specifically for the fascinating ages of post-Civil War to the present, with focus on American History.  Spend some time browsing through this section to find exactly the program you are looking for to spark your homeschool students' love of history.  Click here for an easy-to-use chart that compares all our history programs at a glance.
