Our Documents tells the fascinating story of the American nation through a collection of 100 history-changing documents such as the Declaration of Independence, the patent for the cotton gin, a check for the purchase of Alaska, and a Manhattan Project notebook. Each entry includes an introduction, a facsimile of the document, and a transcript of the text. The book is part of the much larger Our Documents initiative sponsored by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), National History Day, the Corporation for National and Community Service, and the USA Freedom Corps.
