Teller (of Penn & Teller), a former Latin teacher and noted fan of A First History for Adults™ who may join us here at PHR on occasion, offers his own spin on the “Eur-Am Connection” in one of his road essays.
His essay, written as optional homework in Powell History’s 30-lecture course on the “Story of America” (still available!) addresses the connection between Europe and America, drawn as far back as the Fall of Rome, during the period of barbarian migrations.
Enjoy! And don’t forget to join the Powell History Mailing List to get Part 2 of “Why Study European History?”, coming tomorrow exclusively for member of the mailing list.
