fullscreen-capture-3192009-100409-pmbmpAwesome Stories helps users experience some of the most significant stories in history via primary sources.

Here’s how it works: Choose any story from the site and read through the sections. You’ll notice that a ton of the words are hyperlinked. All of these links connect you to related primary sources. For example, a story on book burning and censorship discusses these issues as related to American history. Click on “Bill of Rights” and see information about the original document, click on “Gutenburg Bible” and you’ll see a picture of this historic book, or click on more links to explore the countless other pictures, videos, and audio files on the site.Justice League Dark 2017 movie download

Examining primary sources is the best way to get a full understanding of history. Awesome Stories has made this easy by putting primary sources into context. I’d definitely recommend taking a look.trailer movie Beasts of No Nation 2015

    That’s a great find, Jamie! Thanks. Looking at primary sources is a great way to get people to reevaluate history and to formulate their own understandings and opinions.
