Love American History? This website is for you!

This website-http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/index.html, is a fantastic site for those interested in American History. Thomas was assigned this website in class.

American Memory provides free and open access through the Internet to written and spoken words, sound recordings, still and moving images, prints, maps, and sheet music that document the American experience. It is a digital record of American history and creativity. These materials, from the collections of the Library of Congress and other institutions, record historical events, people, places, and ideas that continue to shape America, serving the public as a resource for education and lifelong learning.

The original formats include manuscripts, prints, photographs, posters, maps, sound recordings, motion pictures, books, pamphlets, and sheet music. Each online collection is accompanied by a set of explanations and is designed to make the materials easy to find, use, and understand. Collections may be browsed individually, searched individually, or searched across multiple collections.
