Are there any comic book versions of History that you know of which could give High School students a good background in the subject? In particular, my colleague is interested in American History 1840-1968 but any period of American History would be most welcome.

I recall reading somewhere about a 19th century American law whereby a child born in the US would be a citizen only if the father was a citizen and the child was male. It applied either to all non-whites or to only asians. I can't seem to find this anywhere. . . probably because I can barely remember the details!
Does this ring a bell for anyone?

I'm looking to buy a book on history to read for pleasure. My interest is mainly in American history and especially Lincoln, but I'm open to suggestions on other areas too. Does anyone have a good suggestion or two?

I'm looking for something, a poem, painting or photograph perhaps, to inspire a moment of reflection prior to the Thanksgiving festivities. Something to acknowledge how the traditions of Thanksgiving help cover a disturbing history. [more inside]
