In celebration of Independence Day 2022, we’ve created a virtual book display spotlighting new additions to Ekstrom Library that focus on the period of the revolutionary war. Additionally, this serves as a research guide for uncovering hidden histories of the contributions made by African Americans, Native Americans, and Women.
Note that some of the primary source materials contain content that is considered offensive today. These materials are a reflection of the cultural attitudes of the period and in no way reflect the values of the creator of this guide or the University of Louisville.
For any feedback on improving or adding to this guide, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
