Thanks to Footnote.com and the National Archives and Records Administration you can now browse through the Internet’s largest interactive World War II collection online for free. But only for this month.
The collection includes the first-ever interactive version of the USS Arizona Memorial, war hero pages, timelines, maps, photos and documents never-before-seen on the Internet. Users can also upload their own photos and share their stories about individuals who fought in World War II.
Footnote.com is a subscription Web site featuring original historical documents on the Internet, but is currently offering free access to these documents through December.
Want more on the USS Arizona? Visit HawaiiMagazine.com this Sunday, Dec. 7. We’ll have a slideshow of photos featuring my recent trip to the USS Arizona Memorial in Oahu's Pearl Harbor.
You can also watch the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau’s “Beyond Pearl Harbor,” a short historical tour about the “Day of Infamy” with park historian Daniel Martinez. Martinez’s grandmother and mother witnessed the attack firsthand.
