Resources for Families

When you spark a child's interest in history it is a magical moment. Many parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles fondly remember their first trip to a battlefield, a museum, or an interaction with a costumed presenter. Those moments sparked their respective interests in American History. Our Generations program is designed to do just that for the next generation of Americans, spark an interest in history. By bringing families from different generations out to historic sites, we are able to engage with our past, learn about the people and events that have shaped the history of this great nation, while passing along an enduring legacy to the next generation of Americans...while having fun.
