Chronicling America: Uncovering a World at War

This lesson was part of a collaboration between the Library of Congress and National History Day. This version appeared in the 2015 NHD theme book and is supplemented with additional Texas newspaper resources. Chronicling America makes digital copies of newspapers from around the country dated between 1836 and 1922 available online. Available through the Library of Congress with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, this resource includes a U.S. newspaper directory that offers information regarding newspaper coverage from 1690 to the present. Chronicling America can be used by classroom teachers as a source of primary source material that reflects a variety of geographic, ethnic, social, and class perspectives on issues and events in American history. It can also be used as a research source for students for National History Day projects
