PBS, Freedom: A History of US, http://www.pbs.org/wnet/historyofus/

Designed to accompany the PBS series, this multi-faceted website offers a fascinating array of images and ideas.

Sixteen "webisodes" chronicle the struggle for independence, the Civil War, the evolution of the country, waves of immigration, westward migration, the Civil Rights Movement, and the meaning of freedom. Hundreds of historical images, two multimedia games (including "What Did They Say"), multiple-choice quizzes, and teaching guides bring history alive.
