New England in U.S. Government Publications, 1789-1849: An Annotated Bibliography

Synopsis

The period from 1789 to 1849 is one of the most eventful in U.S. history. It includes the first Congress, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, and the territorial expansion of the United States. This bibliography provides references to New England and New Englanders in U.S. government publications issued during that period. It traces the origin of many of the social, fiscal, and foreign policies that were instrumental in the development of the country and whose consequences still affect us today. Included are nearly 4,000 annotated entries arranged chronologically by Congress and Session within each state. Within each Session, the citations are arranged alphabetically by the congressional speakers, followed by the U.S. House and U.S. Senate reports and documents, which are arranged alphabetically by title. Thus the reader may scan the entries in a particular section to get an overview of the chief issues in a state during the period, or the reader may consult the extensive indexes to locate works byparticular,authors or on specific topics.
