Help me spot interesting topics and ideas for my blog.

I have had a blog now for some 8 years and get lots of traffic. I find myself turning increasingly to posting offbeat facts, places, historical events that I find interesting and which I think readers will too. Example: this morning I posted a piece on the slave ship Amistad, gave materials on its history, the trial, and a photo of the reconstruction of this slave ship.
That event is history but one many do not know about. i would like to have a ready source--a book or site--where I can quickly skim to locate other events or things of interest to put together as posts.
Wikipedia, though very full, is too difficult for ease of use.
Any books or sites that I might find useful for my purposes?
thanks in advance.
