Pictures of people who mock me I was traveling with students in Barcelona in the summer of 2011, walking through La Rambla, when I noticed two guys making fun of me.

Historical Texts Collection : History Department : Hanover College The Hanover Historical Texts Collection makes available digital versions of historical texts for use in history and humanities courses. Search by keyword, or browse by subject heading. The faculty and students of the Hanover College History Department initiated the Hanover Historical Texts Project in 1995, at a time when few primary sources were available outside of published anthologies. To make primary texts readily available for classroom use, they selected important documents, scanned print versions that were out of copyright, converted the scans into HTML format, proofread the resulting documents to correct OCR errors, edited them to provide page breaks, page numbers, and bibliographical information, and posted them online. We have since expanded the collection to include transcriptions of manuscript material from the Hanover College archives. Most of the texts in the Hanover Historical Texts Collection are in public domain.
