The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History has launched “The American West,” the latest issue of its quarterly online journal, History Now [www.historynow.org]. Each issue of History Now addresses a major theme or figure in American history with an interactive feature, articles by historians, lesson plans for teachers, links to related websites, and bibliographies.
The issue’s Interactive History section, “Views of the West,” is a map which links to more than 200 late Nineteenth Century and early Twentieth Century photographs of the American West from the Gilder Lehrman Collection. The images depict the mountains, rivers, railroads, bridges, and people of the American West. Photos from Yellowstone, Pike’s Peak, Yosemite, Promontory Point, and Little Bighorn are featured, as well as images of Oklahoma City, San Antonio, and Salt Lake City. The section includes several dozen photos of Native Americans.
