Native America project

Geoff Mangum - Native America project. An immense and invaluable work of scholarship that includes over 10,000 placemarks filled with historical texts, images, maps, paintings, biographies, video clips and other web objects. Of special note are the many hundreds of online history texts located to the relevant area (e.g., St Augustine FL for Spanish military and mission towns, eastern Massachussetts for King Philip's War, etc.) -- documenting in free full-text online books the many tribes, settlements, missions, wars, biogrphies, and the like from hard-to-locate references from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. It represents a full-scale attempt to document the dispossession of the original peoples of the North American continent between 1492 and 1900 in the form of Google Maps and Google Earth "placemarks". These placemarks include Native American towns and villages, tribal areas, archaeological sites, battles, trails, colonial and Indian-war forts, missions and schools, settler explorations, and many other aspects of the 400-year history.
