Hello Dear Readers!

I realize it’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to update the blog, so I apologize in advance for that.  If you are subscribed, thank-you for sticking around!  If you are new or visiting for the first time, thank-you as well!

I’ve been in the process of redesigning the site as you can see.  Hope you like it!  There will be more changes to come as this is something that cannot happen overnight.  Let me know what you think!

In the meantime, I’ve been doing some research at the NYPL and have found some pretty neat digital collections.  What follows are some examples that I thought you might like to see.

There are many collections other than the ones shown here, so make sure you hit the links for more details!

Thanks Again! 

 

Looking forward to yet another year of interesting blog posts on our favorite subject:  American History!

 

Stay Tuned!
