law library of congress

One of the sections of the Webby Award winning Library of Congress web site that I hadn't visited before tonight was the Law Library of Congress. If I had known what a great resource it was, I would have been singing this site's praises long before now. Their Guide to Law Online is excellent, and I've found a number of Delaware sites that I'm compelled to visit from their Delaware page. They also have a special feature in their gallery called A Century of Lawmaking for a New Nation: US Congressional Documents and Debates 1774-1873. It's the place where you can find out something like "what else happened on July 4th, 1776, during the Constitutional Convention," by looking at the Journal entry for that day.
