The Louisiana Purchase: America’s Big Expansion

The Louisiana Purchase: America's Big Expansion 1

With the ink of the Revolutionary War Treaty of Paris documents barely dried, the Louisiana Purchase in 1803 took the fledgling American nation from being 13 colonies that stretched to the Mississippi, to a country that encompassed everything from the Atlantic to the Rockies.

Westward Expansion: Definition, Timeline, and Map

Westward Expansion: Definition, Timeline, and Map 2

The History of the Holy Grail

The Holy Grail

As far as history-spanning, full-on conquests and religious iconography go, few objects have a more fantastical, bloody, and legendary tale than the Holy Grail.

Boil, Bubble, Toil, and Trouble: The Salem Witch Trials

Boil, Bubble, Toil, and Trouble: The Salem Witch Trials 3

In a world popularly obsessed with the occult (the phenoms of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings come to mind), it seems hardly plausible that the past murders of American “witches” were not only accepted but encouraged in history.
