French-U.S. History Site from the Library of Congress
France In America.
The Library of Congress and Bibliotheque nationale de France joined forces to launch a website on French history in America. This is a bilingual website exploring the history of the French presence in North America from the 16th to early 19th centuries. The site includes more than 100,000 images from the rare book collections of the two libraries. Topics covered include France's role in the French and Indian war, the American Revolution and the Louisiana Purchase and records documenting travels of French explorers and the role of French fur traders.
