A fun way to learn history

A friend pointed me to HistoryBuff.com. Rick Brown has gathered copies of historical newspapers. Rick Brown has put them up on the internet.

You can read about the Battle of Yorktown from the The Connecticut Gazette.

You can read about the Assassination of Lincoln from the New York Tribune.

You can read the front page of Honolulu Star after the the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

There are many, many more.

Pretty cool.
