Today, April 16th, is the 68th anniversary of the coining of the phrase "Cold War." In a speech in 1947 at the South Carolina House of Representatives, Bernard Baruch first used the term "Cold War" to describe the state of relations between the United States and the Soviet Union.
In honor of this occasion that would forever alter the American foreign policy lexicon, we at Junior Historians are proud to unveil our latest web feature, a digital history project entitled,
"The Cold War Presidencies."
You can begin your tour of the module by clicking the link above or by using the "Digital History" drop-down menu at the top of the page.
Share your work and experiences with the project. We'd love to post exemplary examples of multimedia projects you develop to help guide future users.
Share your thoughts, feedback, and experiences using the module. Did you try it in your classroom? How can we improve?
This is only the first phase in this digital history project. We will be developing two more modules in the immediate future that examine the role of presidential campaigns and executive action in Civil Rights and the Age of Global Terror. Got an idea for a topic to explore in this framework? Please share it with us!
