History By Mail Father's Day Gift Guide 2023


This is perfect for my dad as he would have loved it as he is a history buff. History By Mail sent me a variety of items for review as a subscriber you will get every month an envelope containing a replica of a historical document. I got a Letter from Annie Oakley to President McKinley (1898), Eisenhower’s “Order of the Day” & Sketch of a D-Day Platoon Leader (1944), a Police Report, a Bus Diagram, & Fingerprint Card from Rosa Parks’ Arrest (1955), WWI Ration Card & Nursery Rhyme (1917 & 1918 Respectively, Check for the Purchase of Alaska (1868).

50 Historic Cartoons in a plastic keepsake box over 200 years of historic cartoons together in one box for the first time. These 50 cards touch upon major moments in American history from the colonial period through the civil rights era. Each card is printed on high-quality card stock in the original color and style. On the reverse side of each cartoon is a full description of the historical context and an explanation of the image. The cartoons are contained in a high-quality bamboo or plastic keepsake box. Tour through history in a novel and entertaining way!

Dimensions: 6.5 inches length x 4.5 inches width x 1 inch height


My Opinion: This makes a great Father’s Day Gift for the history buff and any dad who loves learning about history. I found the letters to be interesting and intruding and wondered why it was so important to include a police report of Rosa Parks but I guess it is to show how unfairly African Americans were treated which I agree was wrong as the color of the skin does not matter the heart does. The historic Cartoon Cards I thought were different too as they showed the cartoonist's point of view and on the back side explained what it was referring to but very informative.
