I don't know if this has been posted here but this site is great:

Perseus Digital Library

Lots and lots of Classical texts are there. It is were I get my texts for my Ancient Greek literature course.

The Online Library of Liberty has a very good collection of books, mostly of the enlightenment period or early American history. Among other things are the complete papers of Jefferson, Madison, Hamilton, and others. Only volume 1 of Washington's papers are there so far.

Primary sources for World War 1 here:

First World War.com - Primary Documents

Letters, telegrams, orders, plans, etc. from the generals to the privates in the trench. Helped me out just now when I had to find a primary source for a research essay, just as a requirement.

MyReadingMapped is another great online source on history because it enables you to experience history like never before. Now you can zoom in on the actual locations explored by Marco Polo, Mungo Parks, Charles Darwin, Lewis and Clark, Henry Morton Stanley, and William Herndon while you read a linked online books or journals written by the actual explorer. Each location is linked to the exact page referenced in the book or journal. You can also zoom in on the sunken ships of the Atlantic and Pacific, environmental disasters, ancient Africa ruins, American ruins, the 235 battles of the American Civil War, the 195 battles of the American Revolution, as well as all the Egyptian, Mayan and Chinese pyramids.

These maps enable you to see the locations in satellite mode, terrain mode, and road map mode. They enable you to read online books about the event and/or provide Wikipedia background information on the subject. The Civil War and American Revolution maps even include National Archive Photos and links to battle activity maps and animations on major battle troop movements.

Nine of the original Google Maps created by MyReadingMapped have been included as subject content on Wikipedia because they provide a map using Wikipedia provided coordinates and link to Wikipedia pages or other reliable online source.
