Included (on a drop-down menu) are: American History, America's Civil War, British Heritage, Civil War Times, Early American Homes, Historic Traveler, Military History, Vietnam, Wild West, Women's History, World War II. I selected Women's History and Aviation History as a sample and was pleased to find a few recent essays with graphics. Some of the articles were in the form of summaries with an option to see the entire article. For a quick view of the scope of the site, see the Article Index. I recently subscribed to Archaeology magazine after reading (and viewing) some samples at a site similar to this one and I plan to visit the site in the future and resample the link to the Women's History magazine. Finally, the site has a special section with an Article Index, with an extensive list organized by topics, mostly in the area of U.S. and Western history.

    Oatmeal Box Pinhole Photography

    pinhole.jpg By Stewart Lewis Woodruff - how to make, take pictures with, develop and print oatmeal box pinhole pictures Aftrer a look at the history of the pinhole camera (and perhaps some historical images) send the students to this site for some great active learning and fun. They will need an oatmeal box and a soda can, but visit the site for all the details. It is designed for kids in a school setting, but you can try it at home with your children or grandkids. The hardest part will be getting them to sit still for the required 20-second exposure time.

  51. Old Time Victrola Music on Cassette
    Ready for a nostalgia digression? I remember the old recordings purchased at the local drug store prior to World War II -- one sided and perishable, with a short (high quality) life because of the damage from the steel needles on the wind up Victrola. Here is a site that plays recordings of many of those old victrola songs from a 1918 hand cranked Victrola. It has everything but a graphic of the record spinning. The site is massive, offering 10 tapes of World War I songs alone...with selections you can listen to for each song. Also featured are Gospel Tunes -Old time gospel hymns, 4 tapes of Christmas Songs of the period, Old Time Spirituals, including Black Spirituals of the early 1900's of the Fisk University and Tuskeegee Institute quartets, Fun songs and sleep time songs for children, Early 1900's popular childrens stories, nursery rymes, Dance tunes range for the years 1913-1929, Marches (including 4 selections by Sousa), Popular Tunes by time period (from 1908 to 1923), Scottish, Hawaiian and Irish Tunes, music on the Origins of Bluegrass, Songs of the Civil War, Popular Songs of the Old South, Popular Exercises of the early 1900's done to music of the time and recordings of Early 1900's Humor.
    Cheap speakers will do fine, but you also need the sound card and the (free) RealAudio software. This might be one of those sites you offer to individual students who are interested in the era or in the general history of music and entertainment. Some secondary schools have anticipated the millenium by offering special courses with the time frame of 1900 to 2000. It is clear that the transformations of culture associated with media have been revolutionary, and will continue to be so in the 21st century. Some students might wish to make a comparison between the first decade of the 20th and the last..or perhaps project current trends in media technology into the future and where they are likely to take us in the next century. Science Fiction again, right ??

The leading character of the book is a 1000 pound lowland gorilla named Ishmael, a creature uniquely placed to vision anew the human story."
