How to Navigate this Site

The true beginning to our project is on the page titled "Introduction" and it is recommended that readers begin there.  The project is divided into four distinct time periods: 1945-1953, 1953-1964, 1964-1990, and 1990-Present. On the top of the page, these four time periods are listed. By clicking on one of them, you are taken to the introductory page for that period. Within some time periods, there are links to additional sections describing points of interest in the development of historical memory at that time along the time. While reading through the site itself, there are pictures and links provided that will be referenced in the text. To enlarge a picture or go to a link, just click on it to see the item's additional information.
