Description

This volume presents a selection of texts written by relevant white (Crevecoeur, Franklin, Jefferson) and black (Wheatley, Equiano) authors during the final years of the eighteenth- century. Their writings represent the spirit of the Enlightenment and explore the meaning and central role of what it was to be an American at the Revolution and early Republic eras.
