Below are links to some of the sections, subject matter and more popular pages on this website (as well as to the all-important state pages):

We also have some specialized material about

Litchfield County

South Carolina:


Sometimes history just won't hold still and let us categorize it by a specific geographic area.  And sometimes a subject is only geographic in the vaguest sense -- it's a whole lot more than about a single place. 

Look for that kind of thing in our Americana section!  And don't miss our new Music section -- there's a lot of history in American popular music.

Military History:


Military history can be fascinating -- not just generals and battles, but really interesting aspects of history that have framed themselves in a military context.  Here's an example:  one of our summer interns developed a great interest in female spies!  Where else will you find material on that subject?
