Readex Adds Two New Digital Editions of Government Publications to Archive of Americana
Excerpts from the Company's December 22, 2006 press release:
Readex ... has published digital editions of the original printings of early U.S. Congressional Journals from the late-18th century and into the 19th century. Complementing Readex digital editions of the U.S. Congressional Serial Set and American State Papers, these Web-based editions—House and Senate Journals, Series I, 1789-1817 and Senate Executive Journals, Series I, 1789-1866—enable students and scholars to study, as never before, political actions and proceedings in the first 75 years of U.S. history. Together these two new collections shed light on key events as they occurred and influential decisions as they were made.
Historically significant topics covered in the House and Senate Journals, Series I, 1789-1817 include the Constitutional Convention, the Bill of Rights and Constitutional Amendments, Alexander Hamilton, and the Fugitive Slave Act. Senate Executive Journals, Series 1, 1789-1866 records executive proceedings in which early American senators deliberated on Indian treaties, Spanish-American relations, the Monroe Doctrine, the Louisiana Purchase, Lewis and Clark's expedition, the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation and more.
