This site’s slogan is “History through the eyes of those who lived it.” Fairly straight forward, but that doesn’t even begin to describe the gems of historical information that you’ll find here. From ancient times to modern times you’ll find eye witness accounts of information about what happened in history.
Think about it—now there will be people who witnessed what happened on September 11th and we’ll recount their memories as history in the near future. Things are happening in our lifetime that is history. We may not have been there when Rome burned, but we were there when the Berlin wall fell.
We all know that you will find history here. So I’m not going to talk about that, let you discover that for yourself. Instead, I want to tell you about some of the aspects of the site that aren’t just historical. You’ll love the “Picture of the Week” section—you get a picture every week of a different historical event. You’ll be thrilled by “Snapshots”—images from throughout history (well since we had cameras). “Voices”—a fabulous section with radio clippings all the way back to 1899.
This site is a real treasure, enjoy it!
