American History

This excellent website, from the University of Wyoming, presents a number of collections of visual resources on American history. The attractively designed and easy-to-use website has, as of September 2009, eighteen collections with over 20,000 images available. Each collection can be browsed easily, and some limited information is presented on one or two of the collections. The images vary quite greatly from issues over racial segregation and protest in the latter 1960s to collections of images relating to the American frontier and rodeos. This is an interesting and highly useful website for those interested in all things American.
