You will use 18 literature-rich resources to journey from before the Spanish conquistadors arrived till the 1850's, just prior to the American War Between the States. Your journey will take you across an uncharted ocean in search of the New World. Along the way you'll encounter friendly and hostile Indians, Spanish conquerors, pirates, smugglers and great men of honor and courage. You'll fight alongside George Washington in the American Revolution and trek across to barren wasteland with explorers Lewis and Clark.
