The World History Documents app should be on every high school or college student’s iPhone or iPad. It’s a wonderful source of world documents including 350 primary source documents as well as 19 audio and video recordings of famous speeches such as FDR’s Day of Infamy speech, the moon landing, Churchill’s message on VE Day, and Israel’s Declaration of Independence. (Note: Speeches are in original languages.)
The app includes documents from the ancient world (such as the Code of Hammurabi, the Iliad by Homer, the Koran, and the Bible) up through present day.
Want to know what the Stamp Act really said? Need to find out what was in the Balfour Declaration? Wondering what is was like to sail around the world in1519? You can read all this and much more. World History Documents is like having a library in your pocket!
