Newsreel videos added to history resource

Facts On File announces that American History Online now offers a new video feature with more than 1,000 newsreel videos, along with the complete content from the revised edition of the Encyclopedia of American History.

The new video content includes historical newsreels with a focus on World War II-era footage. The new “Focus on History through Video” feature on the home page spotlights the new content, with a player that shows a new video—from a selection of newsreels spanning the 1940s to the 1990s—each time the site reloads.
