Description
In this updated edition of the book he co-edited with Stephen Ambrose, Douglas Brinkley presents a profound collection of eyewitness accounts chronicling the American experience from the perspectives of those who participated in its making. It includes nearly 150 works drawn from America's history, from the first shots of the Revolutionary War to the 21st century. Here are revealing accounts from such historical figures as John Adams, Walt Whitman, Mark Twain, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and John F. Kennedy, as well as influential individuals like Booker T. Washington, Charles Lindbergh, Ernie Pyle, Rosa Parks, and Betty Friedan. Yet most of the entries are from ordinary Americans—schoolteachers, students, homemakers, pioneers, and soldiers—who describe everyday events that have epitomized American life over the course of its history.
