Description
Unlock and explore American history firsthand though this nation's most important documents. Much more than a reference book, The Keys to American History tells the story of a growing, vibrant democracy through its laws, Supreme Court rulings, treaties, and presidential speeches, from colonial times to the present. Organized chronologically, each document includes a brief introduction and excerpts, and often an image of the original. Most are followed by interesting and relevant historical quotes from books, newspapers, and speeches of their eras, providing a rich and varied framework to understand each document's significance. The more than 60 entries include: · Mayflower Compact · Declaration of Independence · Washington's Farewell Address · Missouri Compromise · Seneca Falls Declaration of Sentiments · Emancipation Proclamation · Homestead Act · Wilson's Fourteen Points · Brown v. Board of Education · Voting Rights Act · Resignation Speech of Richard Nixon · and more By reading the essential documents of American government, and the viewpoints of the leaders and citizens who wrote them, you will gain a profound understanding of the United States and the men and women who built it.
