    Incredible and yet odd. I regret that this compendium has included some documents of questionable relevancy and excluded others that were far more important. For example, why include a report from a Protestant missionary in Massachusetts Bay Colony but not one word from Jamestown? Why was the seminal case of Marbury v. Madison overlooked? Why no inclusion of the anonymous (Jefferson) response to the Alien and Sedition Laws setting forth the doctrine of nullification? Despite these criticisms and Incredible and yet odd.

Why no inclusion of the anonymous (Jefferson) response to the Alien and Sedition Laws setting forth the doctrine of nullification? Despite these criticisms and the failure to update this collection (last edition 1910), I recommend this book be a supplement to all American history classes in high school if only for the lengthy letter of Frank Haskell, aide-de-camp to Union General Gibbon, commander of the Iron Brigade at Gettysburg. He wrote this account in a private letter to his brother shortly after the battle. Haskell fell at Cold Harbor. Truly riveting.

    I'm gradually going through the Harvard Classics and this is a collection of just what it says - various documents from the Viking days up to agreements on the Panama Canal. The most compelling was a quite long eye-witness account of the Battle of Gettysburg by a soldier named Frank Haskell. I read the book in small bites - 5 min. a day. I skimmed parts of treaties, but it's interesting to learn about things I never would have known, dry as some of it was.

    Is it exciting with car chases and explosions and romantic love scenes, no. In fact it's kind of dry and at times boring. when I was in my early twenties I found this book in a thrift shop and I wanted to know more about America, so I read this book. I still have my copy and I thumb through it every now and again. It's a must read for any American and I highly recommended to anybody who wants a better understanding of the good ol US of A Is it exciting with car chases and explosions and romantic love scenes, no.

    Wish this volume included the documents for the succession of the Southern states and the constitution for the Confederacy. Though illegal these documents are an important part of U.S. History and present an enlightening view into the causes for the war and dispel the myth that the Civil War was about anything other than the right to keep slaves.

THE STATE OF MARYLAND (1819), Haskell's BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG and THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS. It's a good start for Americans as well as others interested in knowing how the United States came to be, how it was shaped and what its founders and early rulers envisioned the United States of America should be.
