I recently purchased history by mail for my dad as a gift and it’s been so fun to receive! We both love it and the staff has been extremely helpful and answered so quick! So excited to see what’s in the next letter!!

Great, interesting product. They give you insight to historical events that you will never find in history books. Every issue also includes a copy of the hand-writtten supporting documents and a typewritten version. Great, great product! There Customer Service process is highly responsive. The only downside is that when I ordered a second 6 month subscription my first letter was a duplicate. I made one phone call and days later the problem was resolved and I had a replacement. Bottom Line - The History Mailings and their outstanding customer service far out weighs any minimal problems..

Purchase was easy, my uncle loved his first delivery which was a letter from Annie Oakley to the president. Great experience.

Extremely satisfied!!

I purchased the cards for my wife who absolutely loves to send greeting cards. She is going to frame one and send rest out next holiday season. Thanks for the original gift idea.

Makes an awesome gift

Clever and enjoyable subscription service!

I learned about History By Mail while listening to a podcast. I instantly looked the subscription service up and liked the prospect of getting a high quality copy of a historical document each month. My subscription worked out to be less than $6 per month and I would much rather spend money on something that I will learn from such as this than other wasteful past times. I have only received my first month's subscription so far but I will say that I thoroughly enjoyed it! It has given me the chance to learn about a topic I would otherwise probably never think twice about or even know about. I enjoy holding a copy of a historical document as it gives me the chance to feel like I'm going back in time. It beats reading something off of a computer screen! I appreciate the History By Mail team and the information that they enclose with the historical document as it gives an unopinionated account of what you're looking at. Just the facts!

Son is obsessed

My high school freshman son is obsessed with US history. He watches so many documentaries and reads so many books. But these letters provide something not found in a book - context and perspective from someone in that era. Great find!

Great Stuff

Very interesting material.

Welcomed Addition to the Mailbox

Acquired as a gift for my Middle Son now applying to graduate school history programs, I share his interest in, and appreciation of, this outstanding selection of primary source documents, each very nicely contextualized. “Two thumbs up”/“Five Star” rating. Would highly recommend without hesitation or reservation. Plus, the support staff outstanding.

Fun History

I got this for my kids but found myself pouring through them too. Worth every penny.

The BEST!

I ordered this for my father(history buff) for his birthday, by Christmas that was his one request-more! I contacted customer service and they assured me there was more. Great gift, outstanding customer service.

Great gift for a dad

My dad is one of those guys who has everything and says he doesn’t need anything. This was a great Father’s Day gift that I know will be a delight for him every month.
