The History of the USA on Google Maps
The History Engine is an educational project from the University of Richmond that is creating a collection of historical articles about life in the United States throughout its history.
The History Engine includes a Google Maps based time-line that allows users to explore the project's history articles by date and by location. If you select a decade from the time-line states that have essays available from that decade are highlighted on the map.
If you select a highlighted state the available essays can be accessed by clicking on the map markers that appear on the map.
