Over the next week or so, expect to hear and see much about the 50th anniversary of Confederation. The Internet is also doing its part to contribute to our understanding of the events of a half-century ago. Today we look at some sites that will illuminate an important part of our history.

An elegant, enriched spinoff of the Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage site, this collection of pages contains probably the best online resources about the Confederation period. In addition to plenty to read, there are multimedia options, including highlights from the long out-of-print album And Oh, What a Battle It Was!, which included speeches from the National Convention.
