Bishop Philip Joseph Furlong's famous text on American History, Our Pioneers and Patriots, is the perfect companion for 5th-to-8th-grade students studying our nation's history, especially its Catholic roots. At a time when every figure in American history is being questioned and purged, and doubly so for Catholic figures, it is important to provide a solid and Catholic Christian education about the history of our country and what it stands for.
Covering first Norse and Spanish explorations of the New World, the text then moves on to cover the English colonies, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, American expansion westward, the Industrial Revolution, and the early 20th century. Originally written in 1940, this text covers American History up to the Second World War. Included are figures such as Christopher Columbus, St. Isaac Jogues, Fr. Jacques Marquette, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, and many more! All told from a thoroughly Catholic and patriotic perspective, the text also includes Study Questions and Activities for students, making it ideal for both students in Catholic grade school and homeschoolers, especially those enrolled in TAN Academy!
