The U.S. History Primary Source Reader is intended for use in HIS 20: The American Nation, a one semester U.S. History Survey class offered by the History Department at Bronx Community College of the City University of New York (BCC CUNY).
The reader is organized both chronologically and thematically and features some of the most significant or iconic documents in U.S. History. The primary sources are audio, written, and visual sources intended for vigorous discourse analysis and are drawn from a wide range of repositories. Finally, the reader is for educational purposes and remains a constant work in progress aiming to always reflect dynamic changes in the field of historical inquiry.
The reader was developed by Drs. Stephen Duncan, Prithi Kanakamedala, and Seth Offenbach, faculty members in BCC's History Department. As the reader is a constant work in progress and intends to reflect changes in the field of historical inquiry, primary source suggestions are always welcome.
