dMarie Time Capsule

Ten years ago, around the time the Scout Project was in its infancy, Bill Clinton was president, Mariah Carey was running up the pop music charts with the song Hero, and shows like ER and Friends remained popular with millions of Americans. You might ask how we found this all out, and if you guessed that we consulted the dMarie Time Capsule "On this Day in History" search engine, you would be right. This fun site allows visitors to type in a date from the past 200 years and find information such as the prices of basic foodstuffs, popular songs of the day, and news events that were making headlines. Visitors can use the "quick page" option to return basic information about each date, or use the "advanced page" option that allows visitors to select specific headlines, birthdays, songs, toys, and books for the selected date. Lovers of nostalgia will definitely find this site to be a good way to back in time, even if only for a moment.
