My Fellow Americans: The Most Important Speeches of America's Presidents, from George Washington to George W. Bush

Front Cover
Longman Publishing, 2004 - 333 pages

Through both text and audio CDs, My Fellow Americans brings to life more than 40 presidential speeches from George Washington to George W. Bush that defined our nation's most dramatic moments.

Organized chronologically by president, each speech is introduced by the author, telling the dramatic story of the speech and explaining its impact. In original essays, Presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton describe the talks that influenced them the most.

Two FREE audio CDs contain the speeches in the text. Narrated by George Stephanopoulos, the CDs let students hear these great speeches as they happened (some recordings are more than 100 years old) or are reenacted because they were given before the dawn of recorded audio.
