Now – Google Stacks

On the flight back into Atlanta tonight, I was looking at Google News. They have an interesting new addition called News Archive Search. So, I decided to type in Atlanta. Of course, you’ll see the typical recent stuff but, you can select date ranges in the search as well.

If you visit the page, type in Atlanta, and select “before 1910”, some rather interesting articles come up. They all appear to be mostly pay-per-view but, this search does include more newspapers than our friendly AJC. The AJC has Stacks which is pay-per-view for older articles.

I was also reading about Georgia spending a few cool million to get ready for Civil War Tourism which they believe will pick up as the 150th anniversary in 2011 gets closer. In Georgia keying on Civil War anniversary to boost tourism, AP tells the full story. The Battle of Resaca is reenacted on the battlefield in North Georgia, May 18-20. | Official Site |
