We watched Monumental this weekend.  I know, I know, I'm a couple years behind, but better late than never.  All joking aside, it was actually very timely for us because it fit right into our American History study.  It may not have had the same impact if we'd watched it back in 2012.  The film reinforced everything that we've been reading about.  I think it had the biggest impact on The Farmer because some of the information was new to him.

America's Providential History, Third Edition   -     By: Mark A. Beliles, Stephen K. McDowell

I've also been reading America's Providential History by Mark A. Beliles and Stephen K. McDowell.  This book is part of the Beautiful Feet Early American History Intermediate study that we're using.  Although, it may no longer be included in the new BF study.  I have an older edition of the guide and it was used at that time.  I've been using America's Providential History more for myself rather than as scheduled for the kids.  I'm fascinated by how the authors trace the hand of God throughout the history of America.  Again, it really ties in with everything else we've been studying. 

I wish these two resources were required for every American citizen.  If you have not viewed Monumental or are not familiar with America's Providential History, I highly recommend you get acquainted with them.
