    I'm loving animated historical maps at the moment, and there are an increasing number available around the place. This one focuses on American involvement in the Pacific during World War and the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Lots of fun!

    This is fantastic! Pity they're not free and we can't download them though...
  •  
    We got a student subscription to this for our department (which students can access at home as well with their own login) for Aus$200. Money well spent we think!
  •

    Like it. Wish they were free though, but not much is now-a-days.

Ansel Adams's Photographs of Japanese-American Internment at Manzanar - (American Memor... - 7 views

  •  
    The images are organised around themes and can be viewed in very high resolution. Very interesting to see too that even 65 years ago Japanese people always had immaculate hair all the time. Amazing.

Peace and War in the 20th Century | Peace and War in the 20th Century - 3 views

  •  
    "The twentieth century has been a century of war. It began with the Boer War in South Africa and ended with the Gulf War in Kuwait and Iraq. This tragic legacy suggests that citizens of the twenty-first century have a shared responsibility to attempt to understand how and why these conflicts occurred and to discover how peace efforts contributed to the resolution of international conflicts. "
  •  
    Primary sources devoted to helping people understand why the C20th was a time of such visceral conflict. If you believe Niall Ferguson it had to do with ethnic diversity in regions of deteriorating economic conditions and declining imperial control. My high school history teacher reckoned it was ideologies. Many of you will no doubt have other ideas...

Joseph Berry Keenan Digital Collection - 1 views

  •  
    No information on how much is there, but going on the quality of the other source sites provided by Harvard Libraries it should be quite extensive.

    The Joseph Berry Keenan Digital Collection-comprised of manuscript materials and photographs-offers researchers invaluable insight into the Japanese War Crimes Trial -- one of the most important trials of the twentieth century.

Fireside Chats of Franklin D. Roosevelt - 0 views

  •  
    Written transcripts of the 'fireside chats' of Roosevelt, beginning in 1933 and continuing through to 1944. I wonder if, in 60 years, some history teacher will bookmark a site with the Twitter messages that I receive from Obama? Or maybe this message itself? Trippy.

Dr. Seuss Went to War - 2 views

  •  
    These are the cartoons produced by the Dr Seuss dude during World War II (1942-44). It's not exactly Green Eggs & Ham; shows how war can bring out the ugly side of a people. Very interesting though and probably excellent for some class activities or resource design. The images of Japanese are decidely un-PC.
