An Anthology of Texts From Early America Through the Civil War

We are thrilled to share, "American Literature: An Anthology of Texts From Early America Through the Civil War." This OER, spearheaded by colleagues at Virginia Western Community College, curates existing public domain early American literature into an OER and replaces an anthology required for more than 400 students of an introductory English class each year. Access the OER here: https://vivaopen.oercommons.org/courses/an-anthology-of-texts-from-early-america-through-the-civil-war?__hub_id=1

This book is the result of students who have endeavored, over the semesters, to follow links to the public domain locations of the texts I assigned in the Survey of American Literature I course. The ease with which works in the public domain can be digitally accessed has enabled this book exist. In....
