255 pages3 hours


The period leading up to the foundation of the United States of America was a period in which a contentious debate permeated the colonies. A growing call for independence from England began to become discussed in whispers amongst the colonists. This contention was arguably only rivaled at one other time in American history, the period leading up to the America Civil War and the emancipation of the slaves. A wealth of historical documents chronicles these important periods of American history. Some of the most consequential of those documents are collected together here in this volume. “The Declaration of Independence”, “The Constitution of the United States”, and twenty-nine other important documents are combined together in this collection which provides an incredible context to the more than a century of American history.
