When most people think of American history, they picture the way events and changing social values affected the country on a national level. However, while more general study of our history as a nation is important, it’s essential not to underestimate the value of regional history.
Each town, city, and neighborhood in America has its own piece of the puzzle to offer when it comes to the bigger picture. Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America
series seeks to shed new light on each one.
