When it comes to exploring the unique backstory of a given city or town, old-school history textbooks will only present you with a bare skeleton of the larger story. You’ll learn about some of the more important personages that make that place famous, but miss out on more intimate stories from local heroes. Important dates will be covered, but equally important everyday happenings and local interest stories might be omitted.
That’s exactly why it’s so important to explore local history from a variety of interesting angles. Let History Press’s ground-breaking American Chronicles
series introduce you to the places you already know and love from a collection of interesting new perspectives.
