not 100% sure which section to ask this in.
This is mainly a question for the professors.
A friend of mine has the opportunity to help put together a U.S. history and asked me if I could think of any key documents that should be included as reading in the course. They are already going to be using this book, http://www.amazon.com/The-Essential-American-Documents-Speeches/dp/B0055X4PMG#reader_B0055X4PMG but asked if I could think of anything else. The book appears to be your standard “patriotic” documents, speeches by Lincoln, Douglas MacArthur, etc.
Are there any specific other documents that should be read. possibly some specific, little read inauguration/farewell speeches, specific letters by Jefferson, etc.?
