Critical Acclaim for
American Treasures

“In American Treasures, Stephen Puleo once again educates, enlightens, and entertains us, this time through the history of the most important documents of our democracy.”
– David S. Ferriero, Archivist of the United States

"Puleo weaves together the fascinating story of how the documents were created, how they came to be protected in times of national crisis, and how they have become ever more priceless."
— Richard R. Beeman, Author of Plain Honest Men: The Making of the American Constitution

"American Treasures is an engaging exploration of Archibald MacLeish's assessment that 'they are not important as manuscripts, they are important as themselves.'"
— Pamela Toler, History in the Margins blog
