What does it mean that Learn Our History is "unbiased"?

Learn Our History's products have been developed to correct the "blame America first" attitude prevalent in today's teaching.

We don't feel bad about the great things America has achieved – we celebrate our success!

At Learn Our History we recognize and celebrate faith, religion and the role of God in America's founding and making our country the greatest place on Earth. Our videos are non-denominational in nature and can be enjoyed by families with diverse religious beliefs.

How many films are available?
