Opinion?
I personally prefer USHistory.com because it is a more accredited source, meaning it is cited by historians in various fields. It also is backed by textbooks companies and editors.

Finally, I prefer USHistory.com because it covers more content and is less reading, but more dense, meaning, for students, they appreciate the easy language, yet dense when reading specific subjects in History.

USHistory.com also provides online textbooks for US Govt and World Civilizations that helps us learn. These textbooks are great in 1-1 classrooms to exchange for the more traditional 5lb textbook, when you can have more information in an electronic form.

I would argue that I enjoy history.com for its videos, and
have used this site for its primary source videos. I just
prefer the UShistory.com as a resource for myself
and my students.
Appearance Wise
