Some of the paragraphs the text size is smaller then others for not apparent reason.
I don’t know if there is way to fix that but, if possible please try.
It would be fantastic if there were instructor resources (quiz questions, etc.) available as well.
It would be useful to include in the primary sources for Chapter 6, the US Constitution, since so much of that chapter is dedicated to that document. It would also be nice to include a selection from The Federalist Papers so students can understand the framing of the debate over the Constitution. Given the polarized nature of the electorate today, perhaps Federalist 10 would serve the purpose.
It would be great if you could highlight the text and underline it, as if it were a real textbook. Having a toolbar that allows you to take notes like you do in a physical book would be utterly helpful.
Where are the page numbers? I am using the online text for class, and we are asked to site directly from the text. However, unless I am missing something, the online text does not have a convenient way to find the page numbers.
It would be wonderful to have text-to-speech function for the text and textual sources. Many of my students commute, are ESL, or have other accessibility issues. Also, they would learn pronunciations, as well.

Just noticed a typo here: should read, “Expansionism” (vs. Expanionism).
See in context

This quote is wrong. It’s “Once let the black man get upon his person the brass letter U.S.”, not “Once let a black man get upon his person the brass letters U.S.”

As the other person has stated, the word should be “scarring,” not “scaring.”

The statistic on the percentage of enslaved people in the South appears to be incorrect. The total population of the South (free plus enslaved) was 12,240,293. This means that enslaved people (3,950,511) made up about 32% of the total southern population. The figure of 45% in this paragraph seems to have been derived by dividing the enslaved population by the free population, not by the total population.

The paragraph on the Portuguese/Spanish is really misleading. Treaty of Tordesillas did not occur AFTER the riches from the New World started flowing to Spain. The Aztecs were not conquered until 1519. Also, the Doctrine of Discovery did not instruct Portugal and Spain to “treat the natives with Christian compassion.” Instead, the Pope said that they can do whatever they want to non-Christians: “They are to put them in perpetual slavery”. This becomes the legal argument to expand conquest and the US Court later uses this to argue that white Americans had the right to seize all indigenous lands.

Just a comment on font size for this chapter. The font sizes are all over the place. Would be easier to read with standardized font sizes. Thank you.

. . . had a competent but lackadaisical managerial style that allowed Roosevelt a great deal of freedom, which he used to network with such luminaries . . .
Eliminating the repeated use of “Roosevelt” hear makes the sentence smoother and easier to read.
