Why does each region of the United States have its own distinct flavor? How did the diverse cultures of its people create the American West? Students use documents from the American Memory collections to explore these questions in Images of Our People: A Patchwork of Cultures. This is just one of many teacher-created and classroom-tested lessons found in the Lesson Index.
