WOW! Now THIS is a history site. Jill O. Miles left a comment about some of the sites and sharoings I posted here...not even mine, mind you, just goodies I passed along.
And, being me, I bunny trailed right on over to her blog. WOW! Need history ideas for reading, studying, putting together units? Run, don't walk, over to the History for Children blog she has.
Trust me -- if she hasn't shared something about it, it is a total myth and never really happened at all.
