The White House: Introducing Primary Sources

The White House has stood as a symbol for America and the U.S. presidency since President John Adams walked through its doors in 1800. Using primary sources, young readers hear the story behind the most important house in the country from people who were there when it was built. Engaging text, colorful photos, sidebars, and a variety of primary sources introduce readers to the White House.
