>Subject: 100 milestone US Documents....

Hello. This is a pretty nice page to know about. Its one of the links on Thomas.
http://ourdocuments.gov/content.php?page=milestone_documents It lists the top most important US docs from 1789 to 1965. The reason they stopped at 1965?

The decision not to include milestone documents since 1965 was a deliberate acknowledgement of the difficulty in examining more recent history. As stated in the guidelines for the National History Standards, developed by the National Center for History in the Schools, "Historians can never attain complete objectivity, but they tend to fall shortest of the goal when they deal with current or very recent events."
