Historical documents? Pictures?

Try the Library of Congress web site, a wonderful Internet resource for historic pictures, text and more. There are online exhibitions, and of course the famous American Memory site.

Pictured here? A charge of Ottoman cavalry in 1915, from a photo album of the American Colony In Jerusalem. The "Colony" was a Christian religious charitable commune, ca1880-1940.
