History differs from facts by addressing the who, what, when, where, why, and how of the past. Using 12 guided questions, these titles in the Examining Primary Sources series introduce historical topics related to primary source documents. In double page spreads, the questions and accompanying answers cover such subjects as the primary source content, influential events, key writers, the intended audience, and the public reaction of the time. Slave Narratives looks at the importance of language in slave narrativesРparticularly in stories about labor, slave auctions, and escapeРand why there was a special effort to collect them in the 1930's. Gettysburg Address describes the events during the dedication of the Gettysburg National Cemetery, in 1863, and how Lincoln's speech, though only a short portion of that day, became the defining tribute. Indian Removal Act explains why white settlers wanted American Indians' land, the corrupt language of this document and the American Indian resistance and hardships on the journey westward. US Constitution concentrates on the writing, organization, ratification, and flexible nature of this government document. Enhanced with period photos, reproductions, sidebars, and a Тfact sheet,У the volumes conclude with the impact and lasting effects of these primary sources today. This series fills in gaps from traditional texts, making it a great early research resource. Booklist [Mar 2017]
