Gilder Lehrman Collection Images

All of the images, and most of the documents presented below have been provided by the Gilder Lehrman Collection, in cooperation with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. The Gilder Lehrman Collection, on deposit at the New-York Historical Society in New York City, is one of the largest collections of American historical documents in the United States. Its holdings encompass materials from the first European encounters with the New World to recent events, with particular strengths in the American Revolution, the Constitution, early nationalism and sectionalism, the antebellum period and the Civil War. The Gilder Lehrman Collection exceeds 60,000 items, principally autograph manuscripts and printed documents. It continues to grow. The collection's holdings are deepest in American history from 1760 through 1876.

The Claremont Institute would like to thank the people of the Gilder Lehrman Institute for their hard work and generosity. To search the Gilder Lehrman Collection please visit
