Great work Bob!  Again another lesson that I will be stealing from you to use with my students.  I completely relate to the problem you identified.  Too many History teachers/classes fouce on names and dates instead of causes and factors that led up to these events.

Good stuff. I find myself making similar websites for my personal use to have "all my toys in the same box" to use for lessons. I also like the focus of putting facts into context instead of simply listing them. Especially with the WWI section, this proves very valuable and insightful.
