The Great American Documents series, written by the graphic-book author Ruth Ashby and illustrated by the renowned Ernie Coln, tells the history of America through the major speeches, laws, proclamations, court decisions, and essays that shaped it. Volume 1 walks readers through twenty major documents bookended by the Mayflower Compact in 1620 and the Indian Removal Act of 1830. Each document gets its own chapter, in which the narrator, Uncle Sam, explains not only its key passages but its origins, how it came to be written, and its impact. Ashby's balanced and teachable theme is that these twenty documents embodied our early struggles to live up to the principles of liberty and equality.
