Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Secondary treatments of original sources leave out a tremendous amount of detail. There is much to be learned by reading original documents in their entirety. Our Documents is an outstanding, fairly priced reference that allows students, teachers, and researchers of American history to do just that." — American Reference Book Annual

"From Richard Henry Lee's 1776 resolution that called for American Independence to the 1965 Voting Rights Act, this collection of amendments, speeches, letters, addresses, and treaties covers a range of events that have influenced our nation's history....Photographs and facsimile reproductions of the documents are a highlight of the book—they let readers see the actual items." —School Library Journal

"Illustrated with photographs, prints, and facsimile reproductions, this stunning volume covers a wide range of events that have shaped our nation's history." — American History Magazine

"The beautiful presentation here will help bring history to life for the reader. Our Documents would be shelved appropriately in either reference or circulating collections."— Catholic Library World

"This wonderful collection of political documents mostly from the National Archives records the journey of the United States from the 1776 Lee Resolution to the 1965 Voting Rights Act...The book is well worth the price to have this wonderful source of primary documents." — VOYA
