May Higlights

From an email by Carole Bos:

During May we remember the Kent State shootings, Cinco de Mayo and the
sinking of Lusitania. In addition, we recall other world events: The
explosion of Hindenburg (as it landed in New Jersey), Victory in Europe
(commemorated on V-E Day) and the capture of an Enigma machine from
U-110 (which helped to break the famous German code). Learn the
details of those, and other events, in this summary of May Highlights.

Also provided are an index of videos (200 are summarized and linked in
context), "Voices from Virginia Tech" (a class-created story by high
school sophomores) and information about the Electoral College (as
background for the upcoming HBO film "Recount").
