The past is brought to life in this fascinating new reference that highlights some of the most seminal documents in American history, including the Declaration of Independence, Washington’s Farewell Address, the Compromise of 1850, and the Emancipation Proclamation. Each key text is prefaced with a brief, dynamic introduction and then further illuminated by the inclusion of a special “What They Were Saying” feature that provides interesting and relevant quotes taken directly from the books, newspapers, and speeches of that time.
