Overview

The Ashbrook Center's 50 Core American Documents is meant to introduce
readers to America's story as it has unfolded from the American Founding
into the Twentieth Century. Many of the documents emphasize America's
uniqueness and contributions to the world, but they also present different
views on some of the major issues and disputes in American history and government,
especially on the meaning of liberty, the injustice of slavery, and the
demands of progress. Taken as such, the documents reveal a kind of political
dialogue to readers, an ongoing and profoundly consequential conversation
about how Americans have agreed and often disagreed on the meaning of
freedom and self-government. 50 Core American Documents invites teachers
and citizens alike to join in this American political dialogue.

A great overview of what we as Americans use as a base of our democracy . Reading this is offers a simple foundations of understanding the debates And controversy over our freedom. Actually reading the documents as written gives hope and insights as to why they were written.
