Our National Life: American History at the National Archives
[From the Publisher] Published in honor of the National Archives’ 75th anniversary, this highly illustrated volume takes the reader on a journey through American history, offering a close-up examination of some of the billions of documents, photographs, maps, and films in the holdings of the National Archives. All facets of the American story emerge here, from the noble to the ignoble, the monumental to the mundane. The overriding themes of the nation’s history are covered—territorial exploration and expansion, immigration and migration, political life, the rights of women and minorities, and the growth of industry and technology.
Featuring more than 800 illustrations, with succinct captions, and essays by some of America’s leading journalists, political commentators and broadcasters, this work provides readers with a glimpse into the extensive holdings waiting to be discovered at the National Archives. 320 pages, hardcover. 10-1/2” x 11-1/4”.comments powered by Disqus
