I recently took on the endeavor of creating some content for USHistorySite.com. I figured since most of the visitors to the site were teachers looking for lesson plans and that I could complement the lesson plans with real content...
So... I started with Biographies of the US Presidents. Though I haven't completed all of them... I tried to knock out some of the most important ones.
Enjoy the bios.
Lesson plans, primary sources, quotes and games from our nation's leaders...
Here's a fun presidents name game for the holiday... http://ushistorysite.com/games/president_hangman.php
There is man named Livius, who endeavors not to suck. In fact he's great. He gives context to all things history. Mostly medieval and Ancient European history (but isn't that usually the most interesting anyway?), but his thoughts and postings run the gambit.
