- U.S. Congress ~ Documents ~ 1774-1875
Beginning with the Continental Congress in 1774, America's national legislative bodies have kept records of their proceedings. The records of the Continental Congress, the Constitutional Convention, and the United States Congress comprise a rich documentary history of the construction of the nation, the development of the federal government, and its role in national life. In its final form the collection will consist of a linked set of published congressional records of the United States of America from the Continental Congress through the Forty-third Congress.
