What is Your Favorite History Site - Open Comments

Over the years, I have become very protective of my comments. They have been targeted as prime spam space by many spammers and I still have to delete many spam submissions. One of the rules I enforce is that links to others sites almost always result in a deletion of the comment before it is published.

At the same time, I also realize that many people who comment have tried to share a valid good site here. With this in mind, I am going to make a one post exception and solicit reader comments on their favorote history site. Go ahead and on this one post make a link to your favorite history site.

A few notes:

1. Comments in this blog have a no follow tag on them. This means the search engines will not follow them. The site will get no Google PR juice. (If you do not know what this means, you are not in the search engine optimization field.)

2. Even in this open forum, I will not approve an obvious spam site. If it is not history related (or is too heavy on advertising), I will still deny the comment.

3. All comments must include a description of why the site is good. Failure to include this convincingly will result is a deletion as well.

4. You may comment on your own site as long as it is a good history site.

Have fun!

I like http://www.nps.gov/history/. It is from the National Park Service. It includes information and news on archeology, ethnography, historic landscapes, historic structures, history, and museum management.

http://earthly-paradise.blogspot.com is a well-researched examination of the history of the Arts and Crafts and Pre-Raphaelite movements and is a great resource on the subject.

I like RandomHistory.com you introduced to me recently. They have two things I enjoy: history and randomness.

I like American-Presidents.com because it's my baby... I'm currently adding state of the union addresses by James Madison to it
