American history based on weekly researched web exercises
While researching the history of the United States of America, there are many articles that I got on the internet.

While carrying out research on The Declaration of Independence, there is a site that is among the best as it looks like an archive. Despite lacking print dates, this site has links at the bottom of the page. These links give more direction and even give the option of converting the content into pdf.
