Description: Textbooks may interpret history, but the books in the Pages from History series are history. Each title, compiled and edited by a prominent historian, is a collection of primary sources relating to a particular topic of historical significance. Documentary evidence -- including news articles, government documents, memoirs, letters, diaries, fiction, photographs, and facsimiles -- allows history to speak for itself and turns every reader into a historian. Headnotes, extended captions, sidebars, and introductory essays provide the essential context that frames the documents. All the books are amply illustrated and each includes a documentary picture essay, chronology, a further reading list, source notes, and index.

Letters, speeches, diaries, political cartoons, songs, and photographs capture the tumultuous 1860s in this deeply moving look at one of this nation's most defining moments. The documentary evidence reflects the varied experiences of war seen through the eyes not just of general and politicians, but also of blacks, Native Americans, women, children, farmers, and foot soldiers. Personal experiences -- the loving correspondence between a soldier and his family or an ex-slave's testimony on the arrival of Sherman's troops in Atlanta -- alternate with documentary insights into broader historical questions, such as Lincoln's assassination on rival philosophies of the Reconstruction. Hundreds of documents, some never published before, recreate the antebellum period, the war years, and the wrenching experience of Reconstruction.
