American History

How much do you remember from American History class? The chronicle of the United States includes interesting tales and inspiring biographies. In honor of our nation's birthday, we took a tour of American history online:

  • The History Channel
    In addition to comprehensive history coverage, this site offers polls, book reviews and features on unique topics like the history of Wall Street.

  • History Timeline
    This site details American history through a timeline. Visitors can find out how World War I and FDR's New Deal unfolded or explore specifics on Ellis Island, Mount Vernon and their home state.

  • Project Vote Smart
    With many divisions, leaders and checks on power, our government can be difficult to understand. This site breaks down the basics like how a bill becomes a law and the impeachment process.

  • Lycos Zone History
    Presidential stories, important places, significant events, notable figures, inspiring speeches - they're all here. Lycos Zone offers trivia games, a women's history section, details on significant United States documents and much more. The historical comic strips and cyber space field trip to the Capitol are must-sees.




  • Boon Docks
    The name means a remote or underdeveloped area. The site unearths loads of specific details that probably don't make it into general history books. Learn about the annexation of Hawaii, what African Americans did in 1915 to highlight their achievements and culture, the evolution of political cartoonists and more.

  • The History Net
    This site focuses on unique aspects of American history. Transport yourself back to the days of mapping Colorado or learn about life in a boomtown. Relive the Civil War through the eyes of a soldier's wife. A photo gallery leaves visitors with a compelling view of events.

  • American Museum of Natural History
    Take a walk through the lives of America's early inhabitants.

  • American Local History Network
    Showcases local America in wonderful detail. It also provides topic-specific information on antiques, bridges, lighthouses and aviation.
