  2. Luke Graff Luke Graff says:

    An excellent compilation of prominent American works If you would like hard copies of America's most important documents along with beautiful poetry songs and essays this is a great book for that I imagine it would also make a nice gift


  3. Dano Dano says:

    Great synopsis of the greatest principles of our democracy The summary of the Presidents at the end is a good reminder of the highlights of the times


  4. Matt Carpenter Matt Carpenter says:

    It's hard to be excessively great or terrible when compiling essays on American history Primary source essays and speeches are useful for many purposes research being just one But they can go further than that If compiled properly primary sources can paint a picture of history There are many books that appear as a grab bag of essays and speeches with no apparent rhyme or reason This book edited by George Grant is no such grab bag It combines poems essays speeches and uotes from Americans throughout our history These writings give a primer on the meaning of American culture It's not as much about agreeing or disagreeing with the essays but about helping us to understand what makes the United States what she is It begins with Columbus and the Mayflower Compact and ends with President George W Bush's speech on September 11 Along the way we find poems like Paul Revere's Ride by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Stonewall Jackson's Way by John Williamson Palmer We can read Letters from a Birmingham Jail by Martin Luther King Jr and the Pearl Harbor Address given by President Franklin Roosevelt Some would find this volume too hearty and war glorifying but even so you can't understand America without knowing the reasons she gave for acting as she did I would have liked to read sources from the lost cause file like the America First document or something from the Copperheads Northern Democrats who opposed the War Between the States but that's what research is for For those who would want to understand American history from the inside this is a good place to start

    This book is 99% primary source material that captures the essence of what it means to be American and what it means to be free people in society From Columbuss Apology to Bush's September 11th address speeches to poetry and songs to constitutions this collection of writings mirrors what used to be given to every person come of age We no longer carry on this tradition because we no longer acknowledge or revere the past Every American should carefully peruse the annals inside this book


  6. Alex Alex says:

    I picked this up mostly as antidote to the current state of political discourse as hopefully a small reminder that America had some good history and vision going for it too There's a decided political bent to some of the curatorial decisions which is a thing; and I would have liked for some breadth in offerings of the later eras But as a whole the book did it's job and I certainly wont lament having some of the notable writings Article of Confederation Gettysburg Address Letter from a Birmingham Jail on hand


  7. Doug Doug says:

    Inspiring and thought provokingThis book contains snippets of history examples of the ideals and reasonings that have made this country what it is todayAdmittedly there are many things that are missing which could have been included for historical purposes but the documents contained in this book go a long way towards showing the overall direction and intent that our country's founders and leaders have had


  8. Alison Alison says:

    This compilation of letters poetry speeches and articles is fascinating in its blend of sources Whether a founding father a present president or a civil rights leader truth remains the same It is written in different words but as humans we understand the same as our counterparts in the 1700's Truth doesn't change And truth can only be truth if it is in harmony with God's laws


  9. John Hamilton John Hamilton says:

    An excellent sampling of great speeches documents and short bios from every era of American history I particularly like Calvin Coolidge's Have Faith in Massachusetts address and Alan Keys' speech at the end A handy and refreshing little book to have around especially as a temporary relief from all the moronic tripe coming out of the mouths of some of our leaders today
