Excerpts from letters, memoirs, speeches, and other documents in order to show the full spectrum of reactions by contemporaries. These excerpts are brief and do not include complete citations, making it difficult for them to be quoted in student papers. This is a history of emotions rather than dry facts. Its success depends on the reader; when used in conjunction with standard histories it will help breathe life in the period.
