Chester Comics produces a slew of historical comics in graphic novel format. They have a fun website with lots of info on upcoming books and the like (my fave is their page on famous home-schoolers) and also a historically-themed blog (click here to visit). [Homeschooler’s note – they even include a teacher’s guide in a free PDF file for at least some of the titles! I’ve included the link where there is one].
Here are some of their most TJ–related titles:
- Lewis and Clark – Mr. Jefferson’s personally commissioned explorers of course deserve to have their story told in sequential art.
- Virginia Geography – The commonwealth which spawned 4 of the first 5 Presidents of the United States needs no explanation. Click here for the Teacher’s Guide.
- Founding Fathers
- The TJ Biography
- American Revolution
