The University of Houston's Department of History and College of Education has created this website to help make learning history fun. Learn about influential people from the past. Read historic newspapers. Watch trailers from old movies, or listen to historic music. Find games on historical topics, or check out the "Interactive Timeline," an interactive map that shows where and when people lived in the U.S.

You'll also find resource guides by time period, or by subject (family, film, women, Mexican Americans, Native Americans, legal history and more). Or, check out the section on "Ethnic Voices" and learn the history of Asian, Italian and Irish Americans.
