While the homepage of this online history resource is not particularly impressive, the sheer amount of information it contains is overwhelming. eHistory contains over 130,000 pages of historical content; 5,300 timeline events; 800 battle outlines; 350 biographies; and thousands of images and maps. Just as an example, if you go into maps, and choose Maps of the Civil War, you get 26 large, quality, color maps of various areas, battles, and events (such as the progress of emancipation). This is an extremely detailed resource, and one I’ll keep in my back pocket for those tough history homework questions I get on the virtual ref desk.
