AC002_YOUR_AMERICA_DAY_BY DAY_IN_PICTURESTHE TYRRELL HISTORICAL LIBRARY AC -002 Your America Day by Day in Pictures, 1948-1949 DESCRIPTION This scrapbook is a collection of articles covering the history of the United States, beginning with the inauguration of George Washington in 1788. The Beaumont Journal published the daily series for one year (1948-1949), adapted from the "Album of American History" edited by James Truslow Adams. The articles tend toward popular rather than scholarly history; short narratives provide stirring depictions of epic battles and heroic deeds. Stories encompass the pantheon of American mythology from Nathaniel Hale to Charles Lindbergh. Many articles dealt with social issues such as women's suffrage, sports, cartoons, technology, and scientific inventions. However, political and military history dominate the contents of the scrapbook articles. The scrapbook is arranged in its original order. Newspaper articles are arranged chronologically. One folder contains loose clippings. No restrictions apply.
