Description
The past is brought to life in this fascinating new reference that highlights some of the most seminal documents in American history, including the Declaration of Independence, Washington's Farewell Address, the Compromise of 1850, and the Emancipation Proclamation. Each key text is prefaced with a brief, dynamic introduction and then further illuminated by the inclusion of a special What They Were Saying feature that provides interesting and relevant quotes taken directly from the books, newspapers, and speeches of that time. The documents are often paired with photographs of the original parchments, offering kids a real look at the words that made history. An original approach to learning, this guided tour of American history blows clean the dust and cobwebs of the last 300 years, presenting students with an opportunity to engage the past in a way that is sure to stay with them long after the bells have rung.
