This Century America digital history website is about Superior, Wisconsin; Duluth, Minnesota; the University of Wisconsin-Superior; and the local area. Century America was created as part of a distance mentoring course through COPLAC and the Teagle Foundation. It is meant to invite anyone who stumbles onto the site, or searches for the history of the area, to engage with the Great War by seeing virtually what citizens of the day would have experienced.
The goal of this site is to share historical data and knowledge in a way that will communicate area history to the general public, or to the skilled historian. Housing photo galleries, videos about the process, news from local papers, and other documentation, this website will allow visitors to learn summary knowledge or dig deeper to learn more about the Twin Ports area during World War I.
