View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Product Description Wholly unlike the other study guides in this collection, American Documents studies the history of American government through the lens of the documents that shaped her. The book opens with a chronological list of U.S. presidents and vice-presidents, with their portraits. There are seventeen speeches by famous statesmen such as Patrick Henry, George Washington, and Abraham Lincoln; poetry adds to the historical record with the accounts of Pocahontas by William Thackeray, Valley Forge by Thomas Read, the Battle of the Alamo by Joaquin Miller, and Panama by James Roche, to name a few. Essays include two of the Federalist Papers by founders Alexander Hamilton and James Madison; and finally, the legal documents that evolved the U.S. national government, boundaries, and rights of her citizens are reproduced. All forty-three selections include questions for review and further thought to aid Challenge I students, as well as illustrations and photographs culled from the U.S. Library of Congress to further enhance the historical record.
