About the Book

The most significant documents in our nation’s history …

Ours is a nation founded on documents, on ideas and ideals written down and presented to the world for all to judge. Legislation, court decisions, Presidential speeches, manifestos by private citizens — the history of a free society is the history of such declarations.

And the great documents of American history are not merely relics. Their meaning is every day passionately debated in legislatures, courthouses and the media. Their stirring phrases and profound principles are repeated around the world, inspiring in countless millions a love of freedom and desire for democracy.

Now, Easton Press is proud to present an essential collection of the documents that define the American “experiment” and its evolution — Charters of Freedom: Founding Documents of American Democracy, an exclusive leather-bound Collector’s Edition.

The commitment to “a more perfect union.”

Charters of Freedom: Founding Documents of American Democracy collects in a single impressive volume twenty-five crucial artifacts of our nation's commitment to articulate the highest of ideals of liberty and justice.

Here are the decisive statements of the American vision, from Thomas Paine’s brilliant Common Sense, the incendiary manifesto that forced a hesitant Continental Congress to break from Britain, to The Declaration of Independence and Lincoln’s transcendent Gettysburg Address.

Here too is the supreme law of our nation, the United States Constitution, along with most of The Federalist Papers, the great masterpiece of political philosophy in which James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and John Jay brilliantly illuminate the purpose and principles of the Constitution.

Henry David Thoreau’s “A Plea for Captain John Brown”…the Emancipation Proclamation…Washington’s Farewell Address… Woodrow Wilson’s “14 Points”...speeches by Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and Barack Obama….

Featuring all of these landmark works and more, Charters of Freedom: Founding Documents of American Democracy is an “autobiography” of the American political vision.
