In January of 2008, we at Ace's Web World launched our new edu subdomain. Pledged to provide educational information, we quickly made available our U.S. Presidents pages which provide biographies, portraits, quotes and suggested sites for further study. Though well received, we had no intention of stopping there. Recently, we turned to the Judicial Branch of our government adding sections devoted to the 17 Chief Justices of the United States and the Associate Justices of the current court. Stay tuned in the weeks and months ahead for additional education-related content.
