Primary Source State Histories

These books examine the earliest days of each state, from the first settlers to the establishment of European colonies. The text is easy to read and gives the history of each state in an interesting way, including facts on who established and owned the area, relations with Native Americans in the area, unrest during British rule, politics of the area, successes and failures of the area, religions of the area, and famous people from the area. Complementing the history of each state are captioned photos of paintings, documents, maps, newspaper articles and sketches, artifacts from the region, and so much more. Each state book also includes a timeline, the text of historical documents from the area written in the back of the book, a short glossary, and ideas for further reading about the state.
