Making of America

Making of America (MOA) is a digital library of primary sources in American social history primarily from the antebellum period through reconstruction. The collection is particularly strong in the subject areas of education, psychology, American history, sociology, religion, and science and technology. The book collection currently contains approximately 10,000 books with 19th century imprints. For more details about the project, see About MoA.

Making of America is made possible by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Digital conversion of volumes focusing on New York City was made possible through a gift from U-M alumnus Lawrence Portnoy.
