Many times when we study history, we read a synthesized version of it from an author writing several years (or even decades) after an important American era has past. There isn’t anything wrong with this, provided that the historian is accurate in his or her portrayal of the events and the people involved in the events. But in this compilation the “middleman” has been cut out, as you will read the words spoken or written by the history makers themselves. There is no “spin” or interpretation of what was said, but just the words right from the originator.
These documents will take you back to before there was a United States of America, and then through some of the most pivotal and paradigm-shifting times in our history. Truly this compilation of documents should be required reading for anyone serious about understanding and safeguarding the freedoms we enjoy in this great land.
I highly recommend this book to you!
I haven't read half of it yet, but, everything written by Jefferson or Madison is wonderfully reasoned and persuasive. A joy to read and an insight to all that was on their minds then.
I added two documents, anyone interested in this should also get
the Articles of Confederation
and The Constitution of the Confederate States of America
