Digital History makes high-quality historical resources available to teachers and students at no charge.

The site includes a comprehensive American history textbook, online historical exhibitions, and succinct essays on film history, ethnic history, and the history of science and technology. Our annotated primary sources include extensive resources on the revolutionary and antebellum eras, slavery, Mexican American history, and Native American history.

Special features include an interactive timeline and extensive resources, including ready access to historical maps, music, and newspapers. Our visual histories of the Civil War and Reconstruction feature text by Columbia University Professor Eric Foner and images from the Chicago Historical Society and other leading archives. Teachers and students can use our "Ask the Hyperhistorian" feature to pose questions to a leading historian. A special section provides teachers with fact sheets, handouts, and modules that allow students to do history through art, music, photographs, and other primary sources.
