NewspaperARCHIVE.com, the world's largest online newspaper archive, has created a "State History" topic in its new "Topics" directory, complete with state histories and relevant digitized newspaper pages.
"The new 'State History' topic is the perfect place for anyone interested in beginning research on the early United States," said NewspaperARCHIVE.com writer Stephen Carr. "Besides a history of each U.S. State, we've included some interesting facts about the state as well as some statistics on our digitized newspaper content about each State."
The new state histories can be found at http://www.newspaperarchive.com/ContentListbyTopic.aspx?c=State%20history.
New content detailing specific incidents in each state's history will be added on a continuous basis.
