The Atlantic Monthly archives placed online - for free

The Atlantic Monthly has placed their archives online, for free. Previously the magazine offered the archives on a pay-for basis.

Why is this noteworthy? Well, the magazine was founded in 1857, and was intended as a literary and cultural resource. Many important American names found their way onto the pages over the years, and while the magazine is not as literature-focused as it once was, there is still a lot there worth reading.

The back issues from November 1995 - Current are available in their entirety (excepting a few articles with legal issues), with articles from 1857 - 1995 available in pre-selected 'flashbacks'. Hopefully the magazine will slowly work their way back through the archives to release it all.
