Review:

American History Firsthand: Working with Primary Sources
Second Edition, Volume I
Julie Roy Jeffrey and Peter J. Frederick

Completely unique in its approach, American History Firsthand offers students the opportunity to experience history the way historians do. No other collection comes close to simulating the historian’s craft in this way. Offered in a new format, American History First Hand gives students the "feel" of exploring archives, historical societies, and museum collections as they decipher the past.

Each of the 12 archives contain loose leaf primary source facsimiles for students to examine and evaluate–either written or printed sources, visual sources, material artifacts and maps. Sift through public and private letters, songs and sheet music, treaties, congressional acts, portraits, cartoons, film posters, family artifacts, and needlework as you discover the art of historical analysis.

American History Firsthand also includes extensive study aids such as an archive overview, a timeline, a list of sources, and questions to consider, all of which guide individual analysis and encourage classroom discussion.
