Summary
The most significant acquisition of Americana by the Library of Congress in this century, the Marion S. Carson Collection contains vast amounts of historical raw material - manuscripts, photographs, prints, drawings, books, broadsides, and printed ephemera - from the Colonial era through the 1876 Centennial celebration. In essays illustrated with color photographs of 125 of the documents, noted historian Robert V. Remini and Library of Congress specialists show how the largely unplumbed Carson Collection enriches our view of early American life and culture, and may even change our present understanding of the nation's ever-evolving story
