Online Database For Explorers
In their words, "American Journeys contains more than 18,000 pages of eyewitness accounts of North American exploration, from the sagas of Vikings in Canada in AD1000 to the diaries of mountain men in the Rockies 800 years later. Read the words of explorers, Indians, missionaries, traders and settlers as they lived through the founding moments of American history." View

What an incredible resource! Travelogues are really one of the best ways to learn about American history because of explorers' urge to categorize and explain every part of a new and different culture.

It's also interesting, to hear the backstory -- and to research travelogues of the people who they were "discovering."
