"America has been a nation that has unfolded as much on the page and the podium as on battlefields or in statehouses. Here Stephen Prothero reveals which texts continue to generate controversy and drive debate. He then puts these voices into conversation, tracing how prominent leaders and thinkers of one generation have commented upon the core texts of another, and invites readers to join in. Prothero takes the reader into the heart of America's culture wars. These 'scriptures' provide the words that continue to unite, divide, and define Americans today."--Book jacket.

A very good compilation of primary sources about various aspects of American history. It is organized almost like scripture (history, prophets, etc.)

Well worth reading if you are interested in what the founding fathers really said.
