I would love to get the story of the Mayflower. My daughter is 2 1/2 and I think the earlier you educate your children on the history of our country, the better! Thanks!

My husband watches the history channel so much I thought it was the only channel on our tv. I told him he should have been a history teacher instead of a soldier and a fireman!

I chose Egypt because I home school my children and right now we are studying ancient Egypt for a semester. I’m just hoping I didn’t accidentally enter twice!

This was a toss up between Ben Franklin, The Mayflower and The French Revolution. Our kids are home schooled and anyone of these videos would be a great enhancement to their studies. Thanks for a great giveaway.

Probably “The Story of Oil” would be tops on our list. With trying to be less oil dependent, knowing the full story would help, though all sound very interesting! 🙂

I do my family genealogy and I’m related to John Alden and Pricilla Mullins, from the Mayflower. I am 12th generation from them and I belong to the Mayflower Society. I would really like to have these DVD’S, to see how they lived and how they made it to America on the Mayflower. Thank’s

As the spouse of a public school social studies teacher, I watch as he dips into our family budget repeatedly to get the supplies he needs to make learning a positive meaningful experience in his classroom. He has learned through the years that he reaches some of the hardest students best through a mult-media approach. Any of these videos would be great, but since he most often teaches US History, I chose Ben Franklin for him… he finds making historical figures “real” through more in-depth looks at them grabs his students’ attention. Thanks for having this offer.

Would love to own these DVDs. They would be so much fun to watch together as a family. I would especially love to watch the one on the French Revolution .

These videos would be SO great for our family! I am going to be homeschooling our oldest (of 3) for Kindergarten this year and I would be so much fun to watch these videos together as a family!

Both of my daughters majored in history in college. One is a history interpreter at the JFK birthplace this summer. She worked for months to get this internship. She is getting ready to teach. The French revolution looks especially fascinating. Any of these would be such a great addition to her classroom.

Our whole family are history lovers. We spend summer vacations chasing history. This summer we visited the Reagan Library and the Huntington Library

Our children are very young (our eldest is 5), but I am shocked by how much they take away from shows like this when my husband and I are watching and they happen to be in the room. I entered the giveaway because I think these would be fantastic to watch and keep around the house as they grow older. Thanks for the opportunity! 🙂

Carrie August 18, 2010 at 2:19 pm

Okay, just filled out the form. Fingers crossed I win this one. I’ve always been fascinated with Egyptian stuff. Would love to see these videos!
