The American Memory section of the Library of Congress website is the webmaster's current favorite place on the internet. One can pull up little movies of ancient dance steps, read reminiscences of life in 19th century America, and even view a photograph of a cistern in the Louisiana countryside of the 1930's. Neat stuff!
