An 8-year-old Michigan boy loves American history so much that he opened a stand in his front yard so he could school the neighborhood kids for 25 cents a lesson.

“History is very special to the world,” Gabe Fulmerhouser told a local NBC News affiliate.

Gabe said he’s loved history since as long as he can remember and hopes to become a Marine someday.

His dad helped him paint a giant American flag on the front of his stand, which features numerous books on America’s wars and other learning materials like presidential flashcards.

Gabe’s family has a history of serving in the military, NBC reported.

“One of his things that he loves to do is to have veterans, talk to veterans, so my hope would even be that veterans come over and are able to share war stories with him,” his mother, Lesli Fulmerhouser, told the station.

Gabe said he hopes to donate the money he makes on his booth to veterans, cancer patients or a church.

“Not only for money to give people knowledge, not only for knowledge, just to change the world,” he said.

His stand is located near the corner of Glenwood Avenue and Fourth Street in Jackson and will stay up all summer long, he said.
