Images of American Political History - Over 500 Public Domain Images
Images of American Political History is a collection of over 500 public domain images offered through the Teaching Politics Techniques & Technologies web site (http://teachpol.tcnj.edu).
The intent of the collection is to support the teaching of U.S. political history by providing quick access to uncopyrighted images for inclusion in teaching materials. Images are provided in two sizes and in JPEG format for easy retrieval and use. There are absolutely no restrictions on their use.
Images in the collection span American history from the early colonial era to the present. Topics include elections and leaders; struggles for toleration, equality and rights; wars and conflicts; and politically important places and buildings. Images include photographs, drawings, paintings, and maps. The collection can be browsed chronologically or through one of several topical indexes. It can also be searched.
Images are very briefly described with captions, and in some cases with more detailed descriptions and keywords. No attempt is made in this collection to provide the historical context or interpretation of the relevance of these images. Rather, they are supplied as raw material for user already familiar with their importance to U.S. political history.
Images of American Political History can be accessed through a link on the Teaching Politics home page (http://teachpol.tcnj.edu). Creation of the collection was supported by a Robert H. Michel Civic Education grant from the Dirksen Congressional Center. Teaching Politics is published by William J. Ball, Department of Political Science, The College of New Jersey.
