History fascinates me.  When I became a Christian it became even more so.  I know it is somewhat cliche but I saw “History is His Story.”

I am fascinated with older books (that’s historical) on history–we get a window of the times of how certain people in a certain era reflected on the past.  Even more fascinating is when people try to engage history with a Christian worldview.

The following are two historical works in an earlier era in American history in which both authors engaged in a Christian view of the History of the United States.  They are found free on Google Books:

George Bancroft wrote History of the United States of America in 1892.  He was a politician and writer and among his accomplishment in life was the establishment of the US Naval Academy when he was Secretary of the Navy.

 

David_Ramsay_(1749-1815)

David Ramsay wrote The History of the American Revolution in 1811.  He was a doctor that later became one of America’s early historian of the War of Independence.
