Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 04/01/2017 Gr 6–8—A dive into U.S. history through the documents that forged or forever changed the nation. First chapters describe the issues that necessitated the creation of the featured document. The following sections examine the provenance of the document, such as who wrote it and when and to whom. Also covered are the content and implications of the work. Content is well organized. Neat columns of text are balanced with complementary archival images, and sidebars offer questions designed to encourage critical thinking. Others contain expository statistics. To emphasize the importance of the Gettysburg Address to the people of the time, the author points out how in 1863 the town of Gettysburg, PA, had 2,000 residents but an estimated 15,000 people attended the dedication where Lincoln spoke. VERDICT With thought-provoking analysis, this series makes the most of primary sources and is a fine choice for most middle school collections. - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
