The Smithsonian recently brought their Civil War collection to the internet. The site allows users to view the different exhibits from the comfort of their own homes. Each exhibit displays an image as well as a relevant description of the artifact. The exhibits deal with issues such as slavery and abolition, soldiering, and leaders. Additionally, the Smithsonian created a timeline section that follows the course of historical events beginning with John Brown’s raid in 1859 and ending with the convictions of the Lincoln assassination conspirators in 1865. Also, the site lists a set of resources for each exhibit which includes general reference material, websites, and printed materials. As expected (from the Smithsonian) this website smashes a home run when it comes to making history engaging and accessible.
