This website showed a lot of what we are studying in our books and daily lessons in class.  This page has numerous links and shows that this site is for a class entirely dedicated to the Enlightenment.  This site is very resourceful because it taught me many more elaborate things that are built upon what is in the book that deals with this topic.  The links that are found on this page helped me to better understand the concept of the impact of the Enlightenment and its ups and downs over the course of a few centuries. This site goes more into detail then our book does but it helps you to better understand the concept and meaning of the Enlightenment.  This time period may have been home to the Renaissance when time seemed to be in fast-foward, but many things happened that were very important.  This site was a great help to me understanding further the idea of the Enlightenment and how it affects our lives today in many ways.  The resources found on this site shows me how much is at my fingertips in terms of info on the Enlightenment.

This site is very helpful and helps us with what we are studying by showing us step by step the theory and ways of the Enlightenment.  This site is very resourceful because it taught me many more elaborate things that are built upon what is in the book that deals with this topic. The Enlightenment ideas effect how we live our lives today in the democratic government and this site explains the links between the past and future of the democratic society of yesterday and today.  There are many people that have influenced democracy during its first beginning stages such as Montesquieu, Rousseau, and George III.  No one knew what was on their hands when they developed the idea for arts and ideas for religion because it was unlike anything they had ever heard before.  People back then were wary of developing a new form of art and religion because this was totally different then how they had ever known.  Without the growth of the arts by the many contributors throughout the years, our country would still probably be run by the mother country England and a monotheistic form of government.  This site was a great help to me understanding further the idea of democracy in its earliest years of being developed in the Enlightenment society.

This site easily shows what each American Revolution war or battle was about and what was the outcome.  It was very easy to navigate, I understood it very well, and it was easy to find the information that I was looking for in a good site.  Usually when you read about wars or battles, it puts you to sleep, but this page makes it interesting because it tells you why the war happened in modern-day terms which make it easier for more people to understand and comprehend it better.  This site doesn’t seem to leave out much and it shows me that they people that made the site know what they are talking about because they can put it in contemporary terms for more people to understand. I think that it is important for teachers to give you sites that don’t put you to sleep and give you the information that you need to learn, but teach you it in a way that the average high school student can identify with.  This site shows me that the Americans and British were a powerful army and that their fighting skills was one of the biggest affects on the world in terms of new and original ideas.
