Yes, I’ve been there before. It’s an incredibly useful tool but today I found a treasure I hadn’t previously run across.
HowStuffWorks has posted over 1200 history videos that cover all time periods and all geographic areas. I just finished watching an interesting video on Pickett’s Charge and another video on the June 6th, 1944 D-Day invasion featuring oral histories of veterans. Pretty sweet!
Not only are there great video clips (most are in the 2-7 minte range) but there is a related clip section and links to related articles. The browse and search features are easy to use and the results are accurate. This is a wonderful place to find primary sources and period images. Plan on staying awhile!
