France in America


Two great national libraries, our Library of Congress and France's Bibliotheque Nationale, collaborated on this beautiful website that provides an overview of France in the New World. It may be helpful to begin at the Chronology section. The site is divided into four main time periods. The Themes section may also be of use in that it breaks the site into five sections ranging from French exploration to the Treaty of Paris in 1804. Teachers of French may want to have their students explore the site in its French language version, with, of course, constant reference to the English language version.
