A helpful tool for learning American History

This app is great, it helps with learning
Americas history from 1492, which is when America was discovered. This app is mostly like a fill in the blank game, where you are given a questions and a few letters to start you off. If you are stuck, there is a button for giving hints. But savor them, because you only get three per round. Compared to the app called Your World, American History games is a lot more helpful with social studies subjects. But there is one bad thing about this app. It requires some background knowledge on American History. American History Games goes into depth with Americas history!
