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 during its most seminal and pivotal moments. These are the firsthand words of the famous, the infamous, the powerful, and the downtrodden, and they come in many forms, including speeches, articles, essays, public records, landmark legal documents, poems, songs, news reports, and more. Organized chronologically from 1763 to the present, The American Experience follows the great tapestry of our 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; the Cold War; and social upheaval of every kind.

In this collection you will find 596 documents, including: the 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; and The Kinsey Report. An essential collection for students, this publication is also of major appeal to historians, news junkies, and the civic- or politically-minded.
