Cool Site: Churchill and the Great Republic

Churchill and the Great Republic

“This exhibition examines the life and career of Winston Spencer Churchill and emphasizes his lifelong links with the United States–the nation he called ‘the great Republic’.” This site commemorates the 40 year anniversary of his death and the sixty year anniversary of the D-Day allied invasion of Nazi-occupied France during World War II.

After reading the About The Exhibition section, I was excited to get started. I was even more excited when I found out that you could view all of the section of this site either in the interactive version or in the plain text version. This means that everyone can really explore this site. To enter the site, either click Launch The Interactive Exhibition or Text Version.

There are three ways to explore the exhibition: The Timeline, Themes, and Objects.

The Timeline displays the chronological order of Churchill’s life and accomplishments with a great deal of history thrown in. Even if you chose to check out the interactive version of the site, you may want to also check out the text version of the timeline, as it goes back to the first Duke of Marlborough in 1650, and gives you the opportunity to really build up to the life of Churchill.

The Themes section lets you really explore the different periods of Churchill’s life. There are nine different areas to explore here. You can also explore some objects that relate to that area in Churchill’s life. From disappointing his father with his decision to join the calvary to his impact in World War II, you’ll find lots of interesting information on his life here.

There are over 200 objects to explore in the Objects section. From personal documents and letters to images, artifacts to sound clips from Churchill’s lifetime you’ll find yourself wanting to explore all of them, I know I did.

The main difference in the interactive version from the plain text version was the narration from the Curator of the exhibit. You also have a little less freedom in exploring the objects in the plain text. You can see them and read all about them, but in the interactive version you can magnify them and move them around.

Either way, you’ll get an interesting look at the lifetime of Winston Churchill and his impact on the world.
