Volume 5: The Jewish Americans
Volume 6: The European Americans (Non-Hispanic)
Volume 7: The Native Americans

Each title has 12 chapters on the following chronological topics:

1) The Colonial Era: Beginnings-1776

2) The American Revolution: 1775-1783

3) The Early National Period and Expansion: 1783-1859
