Online Longfellow Exhibits at MMN

The Maine Memory Network - one of the best public memory sites out there - has announced the opening of three new online exhibits centered around Portland-born poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. These draw on a 2002 bricks-and-mortar exhibition at the Maine Historical Society, "Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: The Man Who Invented America."

I had the opportunity to intern last fall at the Longfellow National Historic Site in Cambridge, the house where Longfellow lived for much of his adult life (if you get the chance to visit and have a tour, jump at it!), so it's neat to see these MMN exhibits which nicely complement my experiences at the house.
