Records of our national life: American history at the National Archives
Foundation for the National Archives, 2009 - History - 320 pages
Published in honor of the National Archives' 75th anniversary, this highly illustrated volume takes the reader on a journey through American history - from the struggle for independence to the 2009 Tally of Electoral Votes - 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, Records of Our National Life provides readers with a glimpse into the extensive holdings waiting to be discovered at the National Archives.
