The Dirksen Congressional Center has recently unveiled a great new resource for learning about Congress and its work since the 73rd Congress (1933-35). The Congressional Timeline features photos, audio, videos, scans of original documents, and a wiki providing statistical information, the names of leaders and significant legislation for each Congress, and much more. The site will continue to grow, as the Center promises to add new material at a constant rate. Check it out!
