This Day: Taking a Snapshot at Today in History

For those of you that have followed this blog, you will know how much I like current events and history (Newseum, Mapeas, News Map).

I wanted to share a site that I just found entitled This Day. This website, created by Nikon, is an attractively designed look into historical events that happened in the past on the day you visit the site.

As the site states:
This day, today;
it seems no different than any other,
but something historical is happening somewhere in the world.
Each day is a milestone in human history.
The site also offers an option of a screensaver and a desktop gadget. It also offers a nice background soundtrack (that can be turned off), and an automatic timeline that shifts backwards which transports you back in time to key events in history.

Try This Day.
