I am trying to take notes for testing/essay purposes and find some topics hard to follow. For me, I’m trying to put things in date perspective as the chapters seem to jump around. For example, one paragraph might refer to something in the 1500’s but it is hard to know if the next paragraph is in that same time or some other time. For us detailed folks, it would be nice to have date references more often or be assured that everthing listed between date references apply to the last stated time frame.
Thanks for your consideration.
I don’t see a place for American Yawp Reader problems so I’ll post this here.
The following seems to be titled wrong:
The strike being referenced is from 1836. And the text was published in 1898. So unless we know that Robinson’s recollection dates to 1863, I’m thinking that the title just reversed the final two numbers in the date.

It seems to me a map or better yet multiple, interactive maps, in this section and elsewhere are necessary.

I believe the Primary Source, “America Guided by Wisdom Engraving, 1815”, has a misspelled name. John J. Bartlett should be corrected to read John J. Barralett.

The last sentence in the paragraph needs a period.

You know, it is free, and the people working on this text are doing it for absolutely no compensation whatsoever. It’s not perfect, but show me any textbook that is. Have you written the editors and offered to help with revisions and editing?
For my students, the occasional overlap or repetition hasn’t been much of a problem. If anything, it reinforces the content for them, and reminds them that events can have an impact on multiple aspects of society.

Two very important works from Richard White should be included. Railroaded and The Republic for Which It Stands.

And of course, I didn’t consider this in context of the map of the US at the time we are speaking of. Please ignore previous comment.

“Perhaps most importantly, though, it came up at a time Native peoples were removed from the Southwest—southern Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and northern Louisiana.”
I believe this is supposed to say “Southeast.”

That was ever used in war

In the Primary Source “Rhode Islanders Protest Property Restrictions on Voting, 1834”, in the 3rd paragraph, the “B” is missing from the last verb. Currently it is “e given”. Sorry there is no feedback on the primary source page. The mistake is in the 3rd paragraph. See below “…whatever course a true patriot might feel himself to adopt in one of the corrupt monarchies of the old world, no such reason can e given“
