Short description The first five decades of the United States of America was a particularly rich time in the development of American politics, society, and culture. This reader includes over 50 documentary sources that highlight key topics during this period. The voices of familiar historical figures, such as George Washington and Tecumseh, are heard alongside the testimonies of ordinary people participating in the extraordinary events of their time. Sean Patrick Adams' introduction to each document provides the historical context to these documents and encourages students to engage with the material in critical and creative ways, making this reader a valuable text for students of the Early Republic.
