Each unit examines an element of the American experience that will genuinely interest and inform not only immigrants to the United States but also learners abroad who want to know more about the people, history, geography and culture of this great nation. Although the passages are limited to an elementary level of language difficulty, their style remains vivid and authentic. Readers will be inspired by the courage of Harriet Tubman, awed by the beauty of the Grand Canyon, fascinated by the work of the F.B.I., and shocked by the events surrounding Watergate. Topics in Book Four include: • A: The Alamo • B: Boston Tea Party • C: Civil War • D: Depression Years • E: Elections • F: Farming • G: Gettysburg Address • H: Historical Holidays • I: Interstate Highway System • J: Jefferson Burr Election Dispute • K: Kennedy Assassination • L: Lunar Landing • M: Mardi Gras • N: New Deal • O: Oscar Night • P: Prohibition • Q: Quartering Act • R: Reconstruction • S: Super Bowl • T: Thanksgiving • U: Underground Railroad • V: Vietnam War • W: Watergate • X: XYZ Correspondence • Y: Yahoo Land Fraud • Z: Ziegfeld Follies
