The problem with the internet is that anybody can say anything on it. I never use just one web site to study a particular issue (historical or otherwise). My suggestion would be to decide what specific bit of history you want to study and do a search on it. Find a few web sites, take everything they say with a large dose of salt, and then take some of the information gleaned and find a few more web sites. Keep going until you feel you have a good enough grasp of issue. I approach the internet the same way I would a research project, I expect to find large amounts of false information interspersed with facts. It is a persons thinking abilities that help separate the two. Now, all that said, here are a few places that work pretty well for a basic synopsis of parts of history.
