An Eyewitness HistoryBook - 2001

Primary sources excerpted include memoirs, diaries, letters, newspapers, speeches, and advertisements. Chapters concentrate on topics like political turmoil, temperance, the 1921 depression, jazz, literature, the Scopes trial, international affairs, national pastimes, and prosperity.
