U.S. History on the Web

There is so much good stuff on the internet pertaining to U.S. history that I felt it deserved its own page. What follows is a chronological history of the United States followed by some special thematic history sites. These are all topics that are covered in a typical high school history class and make excellent starting points to do further research. If you want me to add any links to this page you can e-mail me at jnelsen@uwm.edu.
