Discussion for The Valley of the Shadow
Terri Milroy (Faculty)
The amount of information here for US History classes in particular is priceless. Primary documentation is rarely so easy to find, or catalogued in a manner that is so user friendly. I see these materials as being valuable both as research sources and as springboards for discussions on a host of American History topics.
The site is easy to navigate, but even better is the link that describes how materials are organized, for those who might be intimidated by the initial presentation.
