Description: "I Wish I'd Been There" brings together twenty of our most distinguished historians' responses to the question "What scene or incident in American history would you most liked to have witnessed--and why?" The answers illuminate crucial moments in our past and give readers a front-row seat at some of American history's most dramatic events. The Salem witch trials, the raid on Harper's Ferry, the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, the voting rights march on Selma, the beginnings of the Vietnam War--all of these and more are vividly recreated here by a stellar list of contributors, including Mary Beth Norton, Joseph Ellis, Carol Berkin, Geoffrey Ward, Robert Dallek, Jay Winik, Robert Cowley, Carolyn Gilman, and William Leuchtenburg, among other luminaries of the profession. With imagination, insight, and vivid detail, "I Wish I'd Been There" is an engaging tour through key events in American history.
