Daniel Webster said, “History is God's providence in human affairs.” Yahweh’s presence and absence in the affairs of men are recorded throughout history. Great empires such as the Hebrews, the Hittites, the Egyptians, the Persians, Alexander the Great, Rome, Britain, France, Spain, Holland, Portugal, Germany, Russian, Aztecs, Zulu, United States and we could go on, all reveal Yahweh’s presence or absence. The accurate history of each society unveils to us men who are either seeking to please the Creator or are pursuing the works of the flesh or are pursuing a combination of both. Accurate history should be learned and taught to our children in order that they can learn from the success and mistakes of others. The adversary believes history is also very valuable, which is why his children are constantly revising history to fit his agenda, as is done in the United States and other Communist and Socialist societies.
I recommend some great sources of history:

Discover the forgotten and astonishing story of our nation’s foundation in the American Heritage Series.

From Separation of Church and State, to the Civil Rights Movement, the heroism of our founding Fathers to the building of our nation’s monuments, this series will inspire every American to reclaim the Godly, true story of our nation. Join historian David Barton and experience the untold story of our nation’s history in the American Heritage Series.
The Teaching Company
The teaching company has a wide selection of excellent history courses that can be purchase on sale and downloaded into an mp3 player. Their religion also has some good material but also some dangerous material. Be leery of the following instructors who do not believe the Bible is the Word of Yahweh even though they teach on the subject. Two of these instructors are Amy-Jill Levine and Bart D. Ehrman. I advise you to stay away from their courses.
Alexander Smith said, “In my garden I spend my days; in my library I spend my nights. My interests are divided between my geraniums and my books. With the flower I am in the present; with the book I am in the past. I go into my library, and all history unrolls before me.” Christ told his disciples, “Lo! I, send you forth as sheep amidst wolves; become ye therefore––prudent, as serpents, and simple, as doves” (Mt. 10:16). Become teleios (complete) in Christ (Col. 1:28)!
