bias, and to keep each national history current. In addition, several other
public domain sources have been used with considerable modification for
articles as well. Although the text at the State Department site

The text of this site did NOT originate at any online user contributed
encyclopedia. Many of the articles are similar because many of these
user contributed encyclopedias and History of Nations have seeded national
histories from the same public domain text. Although many have been
confused about this fact, History of Nations is not a mirror of the content
of these encyclopedias and does not have to link to these encyclopedia
articles and does not have to comply with any licensing requirements.
