The American Presidents Washington To Tyler from the Author: Robert A. Nowlan. As of 2012, only 43 men have held the office of the President of the United States. Some have been sanctified and some reviled. This historical work addresses the careers of the first ten presidents, men who made vital contributions not only to the office of the presidency, but to the course of the fledgling nation. From Washington through Tyler, every term is recounted in detail and each presidential profile provides as many as a hundred quotations (with full source notes) by the president, his friends, family, historians, and others. Each profile ends with an extensive bibliography of books

Historic Resource Study from the Author: Harlan D. Unrau. On January 8, 1971, President Richard M. Nixon signed into law the bill creating the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park. In the mid-1970s, National Park Service historian Harlan D. Unrau produced a major, handwritten, multi-volume study of the history, engineering, operation, maintenance, and other aspects of the Chesapeake & Ohio canal. A rough, unedited typed version was produced in the early 1980s for general use by park staff. In 2006, C&O Canal NHP volunteers began the task of transcribing the Unrau work into MS Word.The work represents an early compilation of the canal's history and engineering that has never been surpassed and will be of incalculable value to researchers and those who simply desire to know more about this unique historic treasure. It should be noted that the original work was developed as sixteen chapters organized in several volumes. The first four chapters are not included here and have not yet been transcribed. For the most part those early chapters contain information on the general state of canal building and engineering in the early 19th century, and background history- although there is also a section on certain C&O structures and engineering problems. Overall, however, the information is less specific to the C&O in chapters one through four than that in chapters five through sixteen treated as separate monographs in this volume.

Our Constitution from the Author: Donald A. Ritchie. The United States Constitution is a remarkable document. For more than two hundred years it has proved to be strong and flexible enough both to preserve our rights and prevent despotism. Yet it has never been perfect, and throughout its life has been amended and reinterpreted to adjust to the needs of an ever-growing nation and adapt to evolving ideas of democracy. The five introductory chapters of Our Constitution put the document into historical context and explain its development: Why was the Constitution necessary? What kind of government did it create? What rights does it protect? How has it expanded over time? And how has it been interpreted?
