An essential collection of 569 primary documents, which explores the events, major and minor, that have shaped our nation and illuminates every aspect of its history. Featuring hundreds of voices spanning three centuries, the documents included in The American Experience express the development of a nation as told through the eyes of those who lived during its most seminal and pivotal moments. These are the firsthand words of the famous, infamous, and forgotten, and they come in many forms, including speeches, articles, essays, public records, landmark legal documents, poems, news reports, and more. Organized chronologically from 1763 to the present, The American Experience follows the great tapestry of our history as it weaves its way through the creation of the republic in its nascent years; civil war and reconstruction; the progressive era; boom, bust, and the New Deal; world wars; the Cold War; social upheaval of every kind; and much more.
