Is there a “most important moment in American history”?


Is there a “most important moment in American history”? Was it the pilgrims’ landing at Plymouth Rock? The Boston tea party? Washington crossing the Delaware? Signing of the Declaration of Independence? Adoption of the Bill of Rights? Finalizing the Louisiana Purchase? Lewis and Clark’s Expedition? The Monroe Doctrine? The Emancipation Proclamation? Lee’s surrender to Grant at Appomattox? Lincoln’s assassination? Union Pacific railroad meeting Central Pacific? Enacting Reconstruction?

Decide for yourself by researching descriptions of these and many other events in U.S. History in Context.

Beside magazine and newspaper articles you will find primary sources, reference books, images and videos on each topic.
