Welcome to America Comes Alive!, a site I created to share little-known stories of America’s past. These stories are about Americans—people just like you—who have made a difference and changed the course of history. Look around the site and find what inspires you.

This Day in History

On November 4, 1922, British archaeologist Howard Carter and his workmen discovered the entrance to the tomb of Egypt’s boy-king, King Tutankhamen. Explorers before Carter had looked for Tut’s tomb but until 1922 it remained hidden from view.  Most of the contents of the tomb are now housed in the Cairo Museum.

 


"What can one person do?"
Read some of the stories on this site; you'll see that they revolve around single individuals who worked toward change.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
