This page is from Hanover College's Internet Archive of Texts and Documents,
which we no longer actively maintain.

In the 1990s, useful historical material was not easy to find online. The Hanover history department pioneered in offering guides like this one to useful primary and secondary sources found throughout the web. Although searching the web is easy now, we continue to offer our most popular subject guides for users who prefer them.

You may also be interested in the Hanover Historical Texts Collection, which holds the primary sources we publish online. You can search the Collection by keyword or browse its table of contents.
