About the book:

Featuring stunning images, revealing maps, historic facts, and concise analysis, the National Geographic Almanac of American History is carefully balanced to provide readers with a deeper comprehension of United States history.

The Almanac is unparalleled in its reader-friendly format: the book's four major sections are enhanced by a thorough table of contents, a detailed index, and bibliography, plus a feature on how to use the book. Section 1 explores America's geologic makeup and answers the question, "How was the land responsible for the way in which America developed?" Milestones comprise section 2: Twelve essays discuss how America evolved to become the global leader it is today. Section 3 covers the major eras in America's history, beginning with the earliest Native Americans. The final section of the book covers: Leaders, Wars, Religion and Beliefs, Presidents, and finally, Milestone Documents, including the Declaration of Independence, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Gettysburg Address, and more.

With an introduction by Hugh Ambrose, historian and a founding director of The National D-Day Museum, the National Geographic Almanac of American History is a timely and essential resource that every American should own.
