Primary Sources of Colonial America

Through primary sources of the time that documented the many reasons people left their homes in Europe and settled in the American colonies, this series provides insights to the waves of immigrants who headed for the New World and the contributions they made to the formation of a diverse nation. Readers will see the big moments at the dawning of the United States and its experiment in self-government through the eyes of the people who lived it. This lends perspective and insights to the ideals on which the United States was founded.
