Recommends it for: high schoolers in American History
Recommended to Erik by: Mr. Ellenberger
Shelves: history
We used this edited collection of primary source materials for Mr. Ellenberger's U.S. History course during the sophomore year at Maine Township High School South in Park Ridge, Illinois. Ellenberger had gone to Grinnell College and was, with Timothy Little in the senior year, a contributing factor in my applying there under their early decision plan.
