HistoricalMX

A project by Sam Houston State University
HistoricalMX is a free web platform that places the past at your fingertips. Designed by the History Department at Sam Houston State University, the project seeks to highlight the distinctive people, places, and events that have shaped Mexico. Viewers may learn about the region through our interactive, map-based interface, which includes historical stories, photographs, and oral interviews. Follow our progress on Twitter or connect with us on Facebook to learn more about the project or to become a participating author.
