The Mystery of History Volume IV, the last and final volume of this world history series, covers three weighty centuries from 1708 to 2014. Starting with Bach and Handel, two of the four significant composers included in Volume IV, the period will see numerous "wars of independence." From the American colonies, the heart of Mexico, the goldmines of Australia, the mountaintops of South America, the shores of Greece, and the walls of the Alamo, we will find mankind desperately striving for liberty and freedom through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. He will often achieve it – but seldom without heartache, revolution, and bloodshed!
The Mystery of History Volume IV is written at a 9th-10th grade reading level and is geared primarily for older students. Due to modern history's more tragic and gruesome events, some families will prefer to use Volume IV with only high school students or skip portions when working with younger students. As with other volumes in this series, activities are provided for ages from K-12th Grade. The Mystery of History is for you when your family is ready to study history in an in-depth, Bible-centered, chronological fashion.
The Mystery of History’s user-friendly format presents three lessons per chapter with hands-on activities, quizzes, tests, a timeline, mapping assignments, etc. Complete one chapter every week to finish in an academic year.
