Common Place

“Common-place is a common place for exploring and exchanging ideas about early American history and culture. A bit friendlier than a scholarly journal, a bit more scholarly than a popular magazine, Common-place speaks–and listens–to scholars, museum curators, teachers, hobbyists, and just about anyone interested in American history before 1900. Common-place is a common place for all sorts of people to read about all sorts of things relating to early American life–from architecture to literature, from politics to parlor manners. And it’s a place to find insightful analysis of early American history as it is discussed not only in scholarly literature but also on the evening news; in museums, big and small; in documentary and dramatic films; and in popular culture.”

This site updates monthly with new articles about history. This month, in the Featured Section, the article compares Thomas Paine’s invention of iron bridges to the introduction of home computers to our lives. It’s amazing how much the iron bridge changed the world and how Paine thought about inventing.

In Ask the Author, there’s an interview with Alfred F. Young, author of “Masquerade”. This book about a female soldier in the continental army sounds really interesting, both for military history buffs and women’s history enthusiasts.

Common Place also has find other great sections like Tales From the Vault (how do biographies get written about people who didn’t leave journals or many written records behind?), The Common School (the use of music in teaching history), Common Reading (a book review about a historian’s solution to a mystery from 250 years ago), and Web Library (more sites related to historical interests).

This site provides an interesting way to look back at history and learn. I think I’d have loved to have found this while I was in school working on projects. Check it out! ~ Amanda Sept 12, 2005.
