Private Lives/Public Moments Summary

Private Lives/Public Moments: Readings in American History, Volume 1 (to 1877) by Dominick Cavallo

A collection of essays by major historians that examine the history of the United States by connecting the private lives of its people to the public issues that have had a major impact on the nation's destiny. The text examines much of what we call "history" as the product of conflict or concord (or some combination of the two) between private aspirations, frustrations, and values on the one side, and public issues, events and policies on the other.
