“History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.”
― Winston S. Churchill
Over the next couple of weeks, I’m hoping to add an incentive for people to subscribe to this blog. But before I do, I’m going to offer it to those of you that visit on a regular basis, and anyone who happens to stop by over the next week. PLUS, I can test it out on you guys! I’d love any feedback on this! Thank you! With that being said, below is your free of charge as well as “FREE” downloadable Ebook courtesy of Project Gutenberg. I’ve also left the Projects purpose so can you to familiarize yourself with it. I know there are fellow bloggers that can get a lot of use out of this, so Keep Reading!
I skipped ahead to Volume 3 of The Great Events by Famous Historians because it picks up at a time in history closer to the relevancy of my blog. If your interested in the other volumes (One starts with “The Dawn of Civilization”) you can find them at the websites listed below. There is no concern of copyright laws with this publication so anyone anywhere has “free” access to this. Be sure you know the difference between “free of charge” vs “Freedom.” . Now, it’s time to get your book! Download by clicking the title or image of the history books below.

About Project Gutenberg:
We carry high quality ebooks: All our ebooks were previously published by bona fide publishers. We digitized and diligently proofread them with the help of thousands of volunteers.
No fee or registration is required, but if you find Project Gutenberg useful, we kindly ask you to donate a small amount so we can buy and digitize more books. Other ways to help include digitizing more books, recording audio books, or reporting errors.
Over 100,000 free ebooks are available through our Partners, Affiliates and Resources.
Our ebooks may be freely used in the United States because most are not protected by U.S. copyright law, usually because their copyrights have expired. They may not be free of copyright in other countries. Readers outside of the United States must check the copyright laws of their countries before downloading or redistributing our ebooks. We also have a number of copyrighted titles, for which the copyright holder has given permission for unlimited non-commercial worldwide use.
Beware of the TPP!
Project Gutenberg is concerned about a new secret international treaty, the Trans-Pacific Partnership. This will extend copyright term protection worldwide, thus halting the growth of the public domain. To learn more, and join Project Gutenberg in speaking out against this treaty, visit The Internet Archive
If you’re interested in volunteering, I’ve left some links below, Project Gutenberg could use the help! I think this is a great way to preserve our history, at the same time make it available to anyone who can get access to it. I’m all about keeping history alive and well…
