The American West: Sources from the Everett D. Graff Collection of Western Americana at the Newberry Library, Chicago
This collection includes manuscripts, broadsides, books, maps, photos, and other materials focusing on the American West from 1722 to 1939.
This new Library database, American West
, is a great resource for images and primary sources pertaining to the exploration, exploitation, and development of the western United States.
"The American West remains the most imagined region of the United States. Its history, for many, embodies the nation's. As this important and exciting resource reveals, there are many ways to access and enjoy American history".
