This book presents hundreds of the most important speeches in United States history, and in almost every example, the complete, unedited version of those speeches is presented. The speeches are presented in four chronological chapters covering the years from 1900 to 2015. Each speech is prefaced by a headnote that provides essential background information and specific details about the speech. This three-volume set also includes a timeline, a historical review of each era, biographical sketches of each speaker, and anecdotal sidebars containing additional information about the speech or speakers.
