Link O'Day: Footnote: The place for original historical documents online

On the evening of the State of the Union Address I thought a site that highlights American history is a good choice. This site puts thousands of primary source documents at the user's fingertips. Speeches, letters, legal documents, even photographs are included. There are several ways to access this information. You can browse using the timeline provided, or you can search for a specific name, event, or other search term. Also, there are eight special collections to browse. Certainly this site is invaluable for teachers and students, but I think it can be a great browse for any American or anyone interested in American history.
