    In July 2016, upper-level Omaha Public Schools students created interactive GIS Story Map tours that connect Omaha history to place. The Story Maps connect with the Omaha Public Schools 9th grade U.S. History curriculum. The maps are broken out by unit (below) and explore what people and events were contributing to local and national stories of the time.

    • The Roaring 1920s
    • Great Depression (1929-1930)
    • World War II (1939-1945)
    • 1950s and the Cold War (1945-1959)
    • Civil Rights Movement (1955-1975)
    • 1960-1970 and Vietnam
