What We’re Reading: August 28, 2008 Edition

AHA Staff | Aug 28, 2008

1908, When the Democrats First Came to DenverAs the next presidential election draws ever nearer, we turn to the history of politics in America. Visit an exhibit on Democrats in Denver in 1908, read summaries of past Democratic and Republican conventions, and check out a map on voting and population data over time. Then we switch to National Parks and preservation. Hear about a battlefield threatened by Wal-Mart, learn about National Parks in the classroom, and read up on repair plans for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Finally we link to the National Archives’ special document displays, the future digitization of the Dead Sea scrolls, and an upcoming conference in memory of Charles Tilly.
