Chronicles of America is the title of a fifty volume series on American history. Originally printed in 1918, the volumes were written by historians of the time about various aspects of American History. The series was edited by Allen Johnson. Since the copyright has expired, some of the volumes are freely available in electronic form.

In 1923, Yale decided to create a series of films based on the books. Fifteen films were ultimately produced.

Originally a series from the Yale University press, they were recently republished by Kessington Publishing, a publisher of rare and out of print books, in 2003.
