Read Primary Documents from America’s Founders

Here’s a cool site that our history students and faculty may be useful. It is Founders Online, which is a new site from the US National Archives. This site is a great source for primary documents written by the founders of the United States.

Here’s the description from the website:

The National Archives, through its National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), has entered into a cooperative agreement with The University of Virginia Press to create this site and make freely available online the historical documents of the Founders of the United States of America.

Through this website, you will be able to read and search through thousands of records from George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison and see firsthand the growth of democracy and the birth of the Republic.
