Why Documents Matter: American Originals and the Historical Imagination, 4th edition
Why Documents Matter: American Originals and the Historical Imagination features documents from the Gilder Lehrman Collection, ranging from a letter written by a Jamestown colonist in 1622 to the inauguration of Barack Obama in 2009. These documents include handwritten letters by leading figures such as George Washington and Frederick Douglass, as well as by everyday people who lived through momentous times. They can be the focus of language arts and literacy education as well as history and civics courses. But they are also of interest to the general reader because they not only serve as historical evidence, they also deepen and humanize our sense of history.
