This online exhibit was developed from an exhibit of the same name, comprised of a collection of primary documents handwritten by historically significant individuals in the 18th and 19th centuries. These documents shed light on both major events and the details of daily life in the past. The original exhibit materials and the accompanying audio are currently available for viewing and listening in the Special Collections and Archives at Texas A&M International University, Sue and Radcliffe Killam Library.

This narrarated video presentation comprises nine documents: an introduction plus conversations about seven notable figures and concluding remarks. The documents are: Introduction, King George III, George Washington, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, and Conclusion.
