History Stories To Practice Reading

Below are short true history stories. They make good practice reading for pre-teens and up. Some people and place names may be difficult but Academic Associate students should be able to read the rest of the words without much trouble. Some words which I think may be challenging have been linked to an on-line dictionary to make reading easier and quicker. Have fun practicing your reading and learning history at the same time!
