History has an important place in our lives.  You understand how important it is to appreciate our past, and how it connects to our present.

Like you, we believe that more people gaining a broader understanding of history has never been more important.  This need seems to be more and more evident with each passing day.

Our programming each week, and throughout the year, aims to connect people with history and historic sites but we can’t do this without you.

Here are a few ways you can make a difference for your community and share your love of history:

  • Donate directly
  • Buy your books through our Bookshop shop
  • Select The Pursuit of History as your preferred charity when you shop at Amazon
  • Purchase merchandise from our Shop
  • Gifts in Honor or Memory
