**** National Arcives Expands Online Offerings for National History Day ****
The National Archives announces the launch of a special website highlighting activities and documents related to the 2012 National History Day theme, Revolution, Reaction, and Reform in History. Inspiration for National History Day projects can be found in sample documents, suggested topics, and special activities available at www.DocsTeach.org/home/national-history-day.
These online records include photographs, maps, textual records, posters, patent drawings, and video & sound recordings that reflect the 2012 theme and can be incorporated into any of the five National History Day categories.
