- I am extremely pleased with all the work you have put into your products. My three children ( ages 10, 13, and yes even my 17 year old) are very excited! They just wished I would have home schooled them at an earlier age. I am so pleased with every single thing I've ordered from you. I have most of your CD's and the timeline figures and placement guide. I have found that my children have so much more of an understanding of what to learn and comprehend than what some of these big name companies have to offer (especially textbooks). My seventeen year old has discovered things she did not learn in the public school and now is very excited about learning history! Again, thanks for creating such awesome products and offering them to the public. I am so grateful that I found your products and I will most definitely be ordering from you again in the future. - Kristian White

The CD includes the text for each lesson, lesson overviews, project overviews, and projects. This is the fifth installment in the Time Travelers series designed for students in grades 3 to 8. I found that it had nearly all I needed to introduce my children to the Civil War... - Maggi Beardsley, The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine, LLC, June 2009
