Summary

With its distinctive focus on ordinary people, this primary documents reader offers a remarkable range of perspectives on America's history from those who lived it - from Jews in the Early Republic to strikers at an auto plant in 1940s Detroit, and from a Civil War battlefield nurse to a 1990s dot.com entrepreneur.
