American history is a compelling story and this book seeks to tell it in an engaging, forthright way. It also provides students with an abundance of tools to help them absorb that story and put it in context. It introduces them to the concerns of the participants in America's history with primary source documents.
A number of features in this book are designed to aid in the study of history. Each chapter begins with Questions, organized by the main subtopics of each chapter, that encourage careful consideration of important themes and developments.
This book documents the historical Triangle factory fire of 1911 in New York which took the lives of 146 workers--most of them young immigrant women-- and became a powerful symbol of the peril industrial workers faced. Chronology, questions for consideration, a selected bibliography, and an index will enrich students' understanding of this historical moment.
