Today we remember the life and legacy of American Author William Cullen Bryant, who died June 12, 1878, at the age of 83. He was a life-long author and lover of books, having written one of his best-known works, “Thanatopsis,” when he was only seventeen. Our timeline worksheet is a special printable packet of information about the author, a timeline worksheet of important events in his life, and a notebooking page for additional research. You’ll find it as part of a special blog series I’m writing for Homeschool Giveaways & Freebies. You might also enjoy this excerpt of William Cullen Bryant’s “A Forest Hymn” available as a free copywork printable in print, cursive, and manuscript.
In addition, if you click the Printable timeline index cards link below, instead of a single card for recording William Cullen Bryant’s birthday, you’ll find a packet of Bryant and literary-themed cards for recording additional facts about his life and work.
