Every 4th of July in the United States, we celebrate the birth of our nation with barbecues, fireworks and fun with our friends and family. However, there is a lot more to this holiday than these pastimes. The July exhibit in the WCC Library bulletin board area celebrates American History and its many different eras. Books on the exhibit range from those about people in U.S. history to those discussing named eras such the Gilded Age.
To learn more about American History, visit the Smithsonian Institute’s website for the National Museum of American History. There you will find some good online exhibitions such as those about The Disability Rights Movement or The Gettysburg Address.
