Greetings!  My name is Lee Benjamins. I’m a teacher, writer, and a scholar of nineteenth century US history. I live in Houston and work at Houston Community College where I’m an Adjunct Professor of History teaching Dual Credit US History at Memorial Senior High School, along with Advanced Placement United States History.

On this site you can find my CV and publications, information on my current research and teaching, links to blogs and online resources I follow, and some organizations I support.  Feel free to email me at ira.benjamins@springbranchisd.com.
