Spanning the decades from colonial times to modern day, the Almanacs of American Life series delves into the daily lives of the American people. The broad range of information includes the prices of everyday items in colonial America, medical practices during the Revolutionary period, the annual salaries of teachers during Victorian times, the number of Americans who had indoor plumbing during the early part of the twentieth century, and much more.

This comprehensive series provides a solid foundation for imaginative research and critical thought, making it an ideal resource for students working on American history assignments. Each volume uses statistics and tables that offer an unprecedented amount of intriguing facts. Archival illustrations such as maps, photographs, cartoons, and advertisements visually document each era and invite researchers to browse through these volumes again and again.

Each book in the series provides students with information covering:
-- Climate, geography, and natural history
-- The economy, agriculture, industry, professions, trade, and finance
-- Population: size and character, family data, marriage age, birth rate, and immigration rate
-- Politics and government
-- Diet and health, mortality rates, and life span
-- Arts and letters
-- Popular culture
-- and more.

Revolutionary America documents the diversity of everyday life during perhaps the most momentous forty years in American history: the upheavals of the Revolutionary War, the creation of a stable government, and the beginnings of our nation's movement West. With topics spanning from rural marriage customs and early medical practices to voting qualifications andmortality rates, this source provides both lively, informative essays that complement the statistical data and a wealth of primary source material necessary for research and critical thinking.
