News As It Happened

History buffs may want to take a look at OldMagazineArticles.com, which is a site for -- you guessed it -- old magazine articles. Topics covered include American Civil War History, Women's Fashion Society and Manners, European Royalty and more. For students doing papers on specific eras or events in history, reading articles that cover the events as they happened can be especially compelling. According to the Web site's owner, the old articles, essays, poetry, cartoons and photographs that can be found on the site have all been collected from a number of different libraries, bookshops and yard sales throughout the United States and Europe and are, to the best of his knowledge, in the public domain.
