Picture of Dr. Ron McArthur My name is Ron McArthur. My special area of interest is nineteenth century America, especially the Civil War.  I teach survey courses in US History and Western Civilization.

I am particularly interested in United States history. The Civil War is a good example of a page on the net that I return to regularly.


OTHER WEB PAGES

As a historian, people are always asking me "Why study History?" Here's a web site that explains the discipline.  Another good resource is The History Net. Check it out.

I also recommend HistoryChannel.com for updated information on current issues in history.


Another interest that I have is baseball, especially the New York Yankees. Try The Yankees to get the latest scoop on the Bronx Bombers.

In these courses, I rely on visual presentations with an emphasis on art. One site I use is Art Museums as a typical Internet resource.
