U.S. History Scene is a multimedia education website originally founded at Harvard University composed of historians & educators at over 25 universities dedicated to providing students and teachers with easy access to premier digital resources, live digital curriculum, and cutting-edge history scholarship. Our goal is to use innovative open source technology to democratize learning, narrow the achievement gap by helping history students realize their intellectual potential, and master United States history in a way that is entertaining, relevant, and intuitive. We bring you the best of the archives (without the dust!).
U.S. History Scene has been cited by the New York Times, Salon.com, GQ, The Smithsonian, and Harvard University Press for its historical research. We are increasingly used by the tourism industry to help educate tourists about the history of major vacation and historical sites across the United States.
