Welcome to American History Central
American History Central is an online digital encyclopedia, and is being developed as an educational resource for teachers and students.
Search Qualified Education Resources
One of the great problems of searching for reference and research materials online is the fact that much of the content available does not come from trusted resources. Our custom search engine allows you to search across a select set of digital encyclopedias, chosen by our expert team. By using this engine, you can trust that the results are qualified and accurate.
This site has been built with the Encyclopedia Content Management System (eCMS), a framework which has been developed by R.Squared Communications. eCMS also powers Ohio History Central: Online Encyclopedia of Ohio History, KnowLA: Encyclopedia of Louisiana Culture and History and The Forgotten Men: An Encyclopedia of the Great Depression. In early 2010, the Tennessee Encyclopedia of History and Culture will convert its back-end system to the eCMS framework.
