The Early National Period by Sarah J. Purcell

Letters, speeches, and newspaper articles serve as witnesses to America's growth from fledgling republic in 1783 into rapidly expanding nation by 1828. Historian Purcell (Grinnell College, IA) notes that although many of the personalities and people who lived during this time are well-known—John Adams, Abigail Adams, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington—many Americans have little sense of what the individuals did or why they were important. She explains, through the points of view of both the famous and the more obscure players in early US history. The work includes excerpts from documents, capsule biographies of key figures, seven maps, and many b&w illustrations. Oversize: 8.75x11.25". Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
