This was an excellent source of history from letters, essays, journal entries and other forms of personal communication written from some of the greatest historical figures of our time. From Fredrick Douglas to jailhouse interviews of Nat Turner, this book portrays historical events from a personal and not a textbook perspective. At first I didn't understand the necessity of this book that goes along with the textbook, "Give Me Liberty" but after taking the class, I realized the importance of this book in that it compliments the textbook by giving it a personal touch. An excellent read. Highly recommended!

This textbook, by Foner is now required for quite a few history classes in the states, but t also seems to offer a more complete view of U.S. History than we students are used to. Even if you're buying this cause it's required, if you enjoy history, you'll find this book insightful and interesting.

This book is a good source of historical documents; however, it not needed for U.S. History courses unless the instructor requires it. I bought this to supplement the many papers I wrote, but I rarely used it and depended on library books instead.

Format: Paperback
I am normally not one to enjoy assigned reading in classes. In this case, though, I actually really did. It's organized well, has fantastic little supplements to each document that really help you understand what's going on. Even though the class I used this for was a year ago, I still use documents from the book (my favorite is one of Abigail Adams' letters) when teaching my Social Studies class.
