Following a brief context-setting introduction, the complete texts of the title documents are reprinted, surrounded by a paraphrased version of each, photographs and maps, definitions, questions, and additional information. This is a well-conceived concept, though it's likely that some information will get lost on the crowded pages. The concluding chapters provide additional background. Reading list, timeline.

Gr 3-6–This is one of the more unusual and useful series of the bunch. The books, which are filled with eye-catching graphics, take important historical documents and provide a nearly line-by-line translation that makes a song, speech, or the written word accessible and meaningful. Though the volumes will generally be perfect for newcomers to these topics, some students may be unaware of the context of the less-familiar pieces, such as the "Gettysburg Address," and this information is found after the translation.
