Designed to give students an up-close and personal view of history, American History First Hand: Working with Primary Sources offers students the opportunity to experience written documents, visual materials, material culture artifacts, and maps-the materials historians actually work with to decipher the past. Completely unique in this market, American History First Hand: Working with Primary Sources is innovative and exciting, allowing students to learn first-hand what history is and what historians actually do. In each volume there are 12 archives, and each archive contains loose facsimiles for students to explore. In addition to the documents, students will also obtain a four-page introduction that describes the issues and themes of the folders. Pedagogical materials will help them explore the ramifications of these sources, as they practice the art of historical analysis.
