Untold

From the first video games to the cotton gin; how do the inventions of the past impact the world around us today?

Perhaps now, more than ever, our history is a vital and very present part of the world around us, so it’s hugely important that young people feel a part of that conversation and can see themselves reflected in our shared past.

Untold is an award-winning collection of more than 250 short, compelling, history videos developed in collaboration with high-profile museums and foundations including the N-Y Historical Society, American Battlefield Trust, iCivics and the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

Not everything worth knowing exists inside the cover of our history textbooks. Untold is here to fill in the gaps and bring new stories to life.
