"Hidden Gems"
Aug 23, 2021
I am an avid history reader and I have found the History By Mail letters to be hidden gems. They find unusual primary source documents that tell the story of a subject from a unique angle. I loved seeing Rosa Parks' police report from her arrest which included her fingerprints, or the original check used to purchase Alaska. This is a very good service that I highly recommend.

"Really Cool Gift"
Aug 23, 2021
History by Mail is a really cool gift. I find it hard to shop for my dad, who has everything anyways. I found this to be a really cool gift and he has certainly enjoyed it. He even shares his letters with his friends.

"Amazing Homeschool Resource"
Aug 22, 2021
History By Mail has been an amazing homeschool resource for my family. Every month we look forward to seeing what interesting primary source documents we will receive. Learning directly from the primary sources, such as a letter from Abraham Lincoln in his own handwriting, makes it much easier for me to teach history than just assigning reading homework from textbooks. Hi highly recommend this service as a great learning opportunity.

"I love this!"
Aug 22, 2021
I love this! I am a history buff and this document is super fascinating. We all know who Susan B. Anthony was, but I never realized the actual details surrounding her trial and arrest. I loved seeing the actual handwritten transcript from her trial. I learned a lot and highly recommend this product to anyone interested in history.

"Fascinating Stories Right to my Doorstep!"
Aug 19, 2021
Imagine if history teachers told the real story of history using letters written by historical figures and primary documents from major events, instead of from uninspiring textbooks. I wish that I had learned history from History By Mail when I was school, so that I could get the facts straight from the source and get a peak behind the history curtain to see famous people come alive through their letters and writings. History By Mail brings fascinating stories to my doorstep of events that I would never have otherwise encountered. The research team does an amazing job of finding intriguing, rare, and important documents that gives me a better understanding of the people and events that have formed our nation. -Sheryl (Grand Rapids, Michigan)
