Eyewitness to History

This isn’t exactly SF, but it’s mighty cool. Let’s pretend that it somehow involves Alternate History and move on.

This site, created by a digital publisher of educational programming, bills itself as “Your ringside seat to history – from the Ancient World to the present.” It presents historical data about various events, along with eyewitness accounts. There’s Plato’s description of the death of Socrates, a 15-year-old girl’s memories of the Battle of Gettysburg, and an Indian interpreter’s view of the Massacre at Wounded Knee. The site also includes photos and film clips.

Neat!
