Footnote frees 1 million historic documents and images

Footnote.com and Chris have published 25MM historical images from The National Archives and others in their first year.

To celebrate, they have made 1 million of them freely accessible. Registered Footnoters can save any image to their Gallery or annotate people, places, dates and text.

You can also immerse yourself in documents with Fullscreen mode and embed what you find in your blog.

As you can see from the list below, it’s a diverse offering from the Revolution to UFOs.

Keep in mind that many of these documents have never been available online before, so it is likely that there are treasures to be found. Some examples:

A diagram found in the WWII Japanese Air Targets Analyses (WWII) documents…

One of more than 5,000 images from the Brady Civil War photos:

Court documents concerning a WWII jewel heist by three US officers - one of them a woman.
