"Over fifty years after its original publication, this classic work in American history is in its seventh edition. In a clear, vigorous style, its celebrated authors present the rich and complex narrative of America's experience in an account that extends from the pre-Columbian age to 1877 in Volume I, and in Volume II from 1877 to the present. Expertly revised to bring the study fully up to date, it reflects new insights derived from significant modern research."--Publisher description

The spirit of 'seventy-six : the story of the American Revolution as told by participants by Henry Steele Commager( Book )

60 editions published between 1925 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who shall write the history of the American Revolution? Who can write it? asked John Adams in 1815. Renowned scholars Henry Steele Commager and Richard B. Morris have provided a prudent, perceptive answer--the participants themselves--and in the process have fashioned from the vast source material a thrilling chronological narrative. The Spirit of 'Seventy-Six allows readers to experience events long-entombed in textbooks as they unfold for the first time for both Loyalists and Patriots: the Boston Tea Party, Bunker Hill, the Declaration of Independence, and more. In letters, journals, diaries, official documents, and personal recollections, the timeless figures of the Revolution emerge in all their human splendor and folly to stand beside the nameless soldiers. Profusely illustrated and enhanced by cogent commentary, this book examines every aspect of the war, including the Loyalist and British views; treason and prison escapes; songs and ballads; the home front and diplomacy abroad. In short, the editors have wrought a balanced, sweeping, and compelling documentary history

Jefferson, nationalism, and the enlightenment by Henry Steele Commager( )

20 editions published between 1974 and 2015 in English and held by 1,288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History should not be written with one eye cocked on the passing scene. These essays, written over a period of years, were not designed as current commentary; they attempt, rather, to recreate and if possible illuminate the American past in its own terms. But an introduction may be indulged in greater latitude than the essays themselves, for it is an amiable literary fiction that introductions are prefatory rather than conclusive. Here, then, I can ask more explicitly questions the essays themselves merely suggest
The era of reform, 1830-1860 by Henry Steele Commager( Book )

25 editions published between 1960 and 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, introduced by one of our foremost historians, communicates the passionate spirit of a tempestuous age, an era of reform unlike any other in our history. The spirit of reform pervaded the atmosphere in the 30 years before the Civil War, the age of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Theodore Parker, Horace Mann, William Lloyd Garrison, and William Ellery Channing. The 55 documents included here begin with a letter from Thomas Jefferson at the end of his life (1826) and conclude with writings of Nathaniel Hawthorne and Horace Greeley
