Did you know that just outside the city of Montevallo, AL in Shelby County there is a place where the history of this great nation is taught daily? The following is a message from the Founder and CEO of The American Village, Mr. Tom Walker.
"The American Village is planning new and improved on-site educational programs which will debut soon on the Village’s historically inspired 188-acre campus. Additionally, in the coming months the American Village will begin offering distance learning programs and opportunities that will engage students, parents, and educators across all 67 counties in Alabama and throughout the surrounding Southeastern states (and the Nation!). Visit the American Village’s website at www.americanvillage.org, and like our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Independence250/), for upcoming announcements regarding these exciting additions to the Village’s innovative and pioneering educational programs."
For many years President General Jack Manning has sent out a daily Revolutionary War Era Historical Event by email. We capture his email everyday and put in the form of an old newspaper which we call "The American Patriotic Chronicle".
Just click on the image at the right to go to the current issue. There are almost five years of postings on our website and they are searchable if you have a particular topic or individual you are interested in learning more about.
When you open it up you can click on the eagle at the top of the page to pull up the latest edition.
Have fun learning Revolutionary War Era history!

The Articles of Association
The following links are to a program for "young historians" that was created by the National Society, SAR for educators and parents to use. The PowerPoint presentation is the main component and is supported by a vocabulary exercise. Once the students complete these they can move on the template that provides them direction as to how to create their own “Articles.” In the template we offer topic suggestions but their teacher might have other ideas to support deeper learning goals.
