- An impressive collection of primary documents on the road to the American Revolution, the Revolutionary period, and the founding of the new nation. Presented by the Internet Modern History Sourcebook, this large collection includes documents by Franklin, Jefferson, Adams, Madison, and many other leaders as well as documents from lesser-known figures such as Daniel Delany and Samuel Searls. Caution: Some of the Web links from this site are no longer active.
- Two very different accounts of the Boston Massacre, narrated by Captain Thomas Preston and by an anonymous bystander. These two documents reveal the objectivity of historical "fact" and the importance of examining and comparing primary sources. Preston's account gives the British soldiers' perspective on the American mob, while the bystander decries the soldiers' conduct and defends the Americans' actions.
- The official online companion to the PBS documentary series LIBERTY! The American Revolution. The site contains a timeline, news articles written during the time of the Revolution, links to other sites of interest, video and audio recreations of firsthand accounts of the Revolution, modern perspectives on liberty and American citizenship from newly naturalized citizens, and a quiz on the site materials. The pages cover from the time of the Boston Tea Party up until the creation of the Bill of Rights.
