A Bit of History in My Mailbox

I look forward each month to receiving the envelope from History by Mail. I love the facsimiles of the subject documents. I keep all the mailings in binders for easy review. Keep up the good work.

High School teachers get onboard Historybymail

You don't know the true story unless you know the back story and Historybymail
unearths the back story in an engaging way. Wish high school history teachers would use HBM as a supplement.

Perfect Gift

What do you get for the history-loving dad who has everything? History by Mail! Not only does my father love receiving his History by Mail, but I love the phone calls after he receives a new one. Each mailing has been the catalyst for wonderful conversations. We have renewed his subscription for three years now and do not plan to ever stop!

Started 2nd year.

Love this service so much. Kids got it for Mr for Father’s Day last year and I told them to repeat for this year.
