Designed to give students an up-close and personal view of history, American History First Hand: Working with Primary Sources offers students the opportunity to experience written documents, visual materials, material culture artifacts, and maps–the materials historians actually work with to decipher the past.
Completely unique in this market, American History First Hand: Working with Primary Sources is innovative and exciting, allowing students to learn first-hand what history is and what historians actually do. In each volume there are 12 archives, and each archive contains loose facsimiles for students to explore. In addition to the documents, students will also obtain a four-page introduction that describes the issues and themes of the folders. Pedagogical materials will help them explore the ramifications of these sources, as they practice the art of historical analysis.

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.
