Sounding Forth the Trumpet is the third book in the "Discovering God's Plan for America" series adapted from Peter Marshalls & David Manuel's adult work. Designed for Ages 9-12, this volume explains the American past through the lens of the providential-history approach, showing of God intervened over and over again in history just to create a place where His followers could worship. This book covers the continuing debates in congress over slavery, John Quincy Adams and Polk, war with Mexico, the Gold Rush, the Underground Railroad, the Dred Scott decision, Fulton Street Meetings, Dwight L. Moody, John Brown, and the election of Abraham Lincoln. 222 pages, softcover. Ages 9-12. Study guide with questions and answers included.
A gripping narrative of the second and final war of independence that secured the nation's permanence and established its claim to the entire continent, by the author of the enormously successful and acclaimed Patriots: The Men Who Started the American Revolution.
This dramatic account of the War of 1812 fills a surprising gap in the popular literature of the nation's formative years. It is this war, followed closely on the War of Independence, that established the young nation as a permanent power and proved its claim to Manifest Destiny.
Full of fascinating characters-Presidents Thomas Jefferson, John Quincy Adams, James Madison, James Monroe, and the future President Andrew Jackson, as well as Dolley Madison, Sam Houston, the great Indian chieftain Tecumseh, Francis Scott Key, Davey Crockett, and Oliver Perry, among others-Langguth's riveting account covers a vast panorama of battles, from the American sacking of Toronto and the British burning of the White House and the Capitol, to the thrilling war at sea and on the Great Lakes and the final spectacular American victory at New Orleans. Unabridged. 13 hours. 11 CDs. Read by Grover Gardner.

TruthQuest History puts God back at the center of the past.
Centered on "living books," this creative approach to history integrates elements of both Charlotte Mason and Classical methods.

Suggestions for activities or writing exercises are often included as well. The booklists follow, with selected annotations on what pages or sections to read and appropriate grade levels for each entry. Incredibly flexible in nature, families can proceed at the pace that's best for their students as they select "spines," biographies, in-print books, and out-of-print classics from the extensive lists.
Proceeding chronologically, entries include lists for Alexander Hamilton, War of 1812, Industrial Revolution, Black Hawk War, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, the Civil War, John Mosby, George Meade, and other relevant unit-study topics.
Grades 5-12; may be adapted for younger siblings. 150 pages, softcover, spiral-bound. Full resource list is included at the back of the book.
