Featuring hundreds of voices spanning three centuries, the documents included in The American Experience express the development of a nation as told through the eyes of those who lived through its most seminal and pivotal moments. These are the first-hand words of the famous, infamous and forgotten and they come in many forms including speeches, articles, essays, public records, landmark legal documents, poems, news reports and more. Organised chronologically and broken into chapters that span from Pre-Columbus-1763: A New World to 1975-Present: The Modern World. The American Experience follows the great tapestry of American history as it weaves its way through the creation of the Republic in its nascent years, civil war and reconstruction, the progressive era, boom, bust and the New Deal, world wars, cold war, social upheaval of every kind and much more. A sample of the more than 400 documents include: Iroquois Federation Constitution; Transcripts from the Salem Witch Trial; Roe v. Wade; The Declaration of Independence; The Federalist Papers; The Monroe Doctrine; Baseball's Original Rules; 'I Have a Dream; Henry David Thoreau on Civil Disobedience; Sojourner Truth on Women's Suffrage; Ulysses S. Grant on the Assault at Cold Harbor; The G.I. Bill, Journals of Lewis & Clark; George W Bush's 9/11 Address; George Washington's Farewell Address; The Louisiana Purchase; The Kinsey Report; and hundreds more.
