 About the Book 

Many document readers offer lots of sources, but only Going to the Source combines a rich diversity of primary and secondary sources with in-depth instructions for how and when to use each type of source. Mirroring the chronology of the U.S. historyMoreMany document readers offer lots of sources, but only Going to the Source combines a rich diversity of primary and secondary sources with in-depth instructions for how and when to use each type of source. Mirroring the chronology of the U.S. history survey, each of the main chapters employs a single type of source — from personal letters to political cartoons — while focusing on an intriguing historical episode such as the Cherokee Removal or the 1894 Pullman Strike. A new capstone chapter in each volume prompts students to synthesize information on a single topic from a variety of source types. The wide range of topics and sources across 28 chapters — 6 of them new — provide students with all they need to become fully engaged with America’s history.
