Looking for a fun gift for an 8-year-old that might fuel his interest in American history (or any history) ... Any ideas? (Some specifics provided inside.)

I think I'm specifically searching for things that lean more toward the non-fiction end of the spectrum, but are presented in a way that is immediately engaging for a youngin'. Certainly open to anything.
If a thing is great, it's great. But bonus karma for less of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln and fighting Nazis, and more of Teddy Roosevelt and James Garfield and the Jeffersonian search for monsters more giant than Europe's.
(The best I could come up with is the Awful America edition of Horrible Histories ... but I probably need a more positive companion to that.)
