The Documentary Heritage of Ohio
Key to the successful teaching and learning of history is its personalization. In presenting documents that help Ohio's rich history come alive in the minds of its readers, this book has purposely sought to provide eyewitness, first-person narratives that will make the reader want to turn the page and keep on reading. At the same time, mindful of the significance of guideposts basic to our understanding of the development of the state, care has been taken to include those documents such as constitutions, laws, and ordinances that have truly made a difference in the shaping of our institutions and the lives of our people.
With informative and accessible introductions to each document, editors Shriver and Wunderlin have produced a book of record that reveals the sources of Ohio's heritage. The Documentary Heritage of Ohio is the second volume in the Ohio Bicentennial Series and a must for all libraries, schools, and the bookshelves of any who wish to appreciate the state's historic accomplishments and rich heritage not only for the bicentennial of statehood in 2003 but for many years to come.
