Online Reference Resources

Online reference resources are a great place to search to find background information on any of the historical events you include in this project. Unlike scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles, these resources generally give you an overview of events without focusing on one highly-detailed aspect of a given topic the way that peer-reviewed journal articles do. These sources are still scholarly, and reliable, but they serve a different purpose than peer-reviewed journal articles.
