Abstract:

Drawing on a gold mine of primary documents--including letters, diary entries, personal narratives, political speeches, broadsides, trial transcripts, and newspaper articles--The Boisterous Sea of Liberty is a panoramic look at our early history as captured in the words of Franklin, Jefferson, Washington, Lincoln, Douglass, Stowe, and many other historical figures both famous and obscure. In these widely varied pieces, almost all of which were culled from the vast and prestigious Gilder Lehrman Collection at New York's Pierpont Morgan Library, the living voices of the past speak to us from telling and often opposing perspectives--from the vantage points of loyalists and patriots, of slaves and masters, of Union and Confederate soldiers. These documents will provide a clearer understanding of such historical cornerstones as Columbus's dealings with Native Americans, the Stamp Act Crisis, the Declaration of Independence, the Whiskey Rebellion, the Missouri Crisis, the Mexican War, and the Harpers Ferry incident, to name but a few.Compiled by renowned historians David Brion Davis and Steven Mintz, and accompanied by several fine illustrations of the original documents, this book will engagingly introduce all students of American history to the men and women who lived through--and determined--the very events that shaped our nation.
