This web site uses the experience of Illinois at the end of the nineteenth century to illuminate larger themes in U.S. history during the Gilded Age. The site provides analytical essays, primary source material, bibliographies, and lesson plans on major themes and events of the period. It also provides a few video lectures by historians. The site authors claim that these resources not only introduce site users to information about the period, but also introduce them to scholars' major interpretive themes and debates and help users formulate their own historical questions for research.
