American Experience Online

Last week we introduced two online video sites. This week we'll bring you the American Experience Online by PBS.

This highly acclaimed site premiered in November 1995, and features over 200 films at the moment. The series brings to life the incredible characters and epic stories that have shaped America’s past and present. Films include the Presidents collection, videos on political events, natural phenomena and how they affect us (e.g. hurricanes, the Hoover Dam), professions and making a living (whaling, the gold rush), economics, wars and weaponry (D-Day, the atomic bomb, biological weapons), religions in America, and much, much more.

Below each video on the screen there are links for example to further information, people and events, a timeline, and maps. Browsing this amazing site will surely be worth your time.
