I've already found several sites I didn't know existed. This is a nice resource, thanks.

Man, I read that as "Brief History of Web Sites" and was very confused as to why Biblical and Medieval histories were on the list...

Good find zarq, thank you for making my stacks of historical nonfiction even more obsolete.

Ooo, terrific, thank you! Basic history is something I always feel I should know more about, and these resources are perfect in that regard. :D

Another place to find well annotated web resources focused on American history is at the History Matters project site at George Mason University.
