The Bill of Rights focuses on the political and historical development of the document. The Great Depression has an extensive explanation of its causes as well as the varied perspectives and programs offered to counteract its devastating effects. The Battle of the Little Bighorn portrays the needs and emotions on both sides of this battle with Custer's downfall as the primary focus.
