Contents include: the complete text of The Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution, and The Bill of Rights; a summary of the Ten Commandments as compared to the Communist Manifesto; a Handbook for Jurors, covering important topics about jury duty and juror's rights.
A lovely, historically accurate book with brief texts accompanying numerous drawings and photographs depicting the life of Abe Lincoln. Includes all of the well-known episodes, and some less well-known events that occurred during Lincoln's life. From the day he fell into Knob Creek and nearly drowned, to his experience taking cargo down the Mississippi to New Orleans on a flatboat… and the plot to assassinate him as he and his party made their way to Washington for the first inauguration, to his actual assassination by John Wilkes Booth. Skillfully and with careful attention to detail, Lloyd Ostendorf recreates these and 150 other events. Available in both an English and a bilingual English/Spanish edition!
