The late Winston Spencer Churchill was many things, including a fine diplomat, an excellent statesmen, and quite a prodigious author. Of course, he was also a good friend to the United States, and this online exhibit from the Library of Congress explores Churchill's long relationship with the U.S., which he referred to as "the great Republic". With generous funding from John W. Kluge (and the support of the Annenberg Foundation), this exhibit is divided into a number of areas, such as those dealing with the Cold War and World War II, and features digitized images of Churchill with his grandson and as a dapper little boy, along with other visual materials. The text that accompanies each section discusses such events as Churchill's first visit to the US in 1895 and his second premiership in Britain, which began in 1951. The site concludes with a listing of public programs being held in conjunction with the _in situ_ exhibit in Washington DC, and a list of further reading material.
