Century of Lawmaking for a New Nation
A Century of Lawmaking for a New Nation: U.S. Congressional Documents and Debates, 1774-1873, contains records and acts of Congress from the Continental Congress through the Forty-second Congress. The records of the Continental Congress, the Constitutional Convention, and the United States Congress comprise a rich documentary history of the construction of the nation, the development of the federal government, and its role in the national life. The collection is maintained by the Library of Congress.
Congress.gov, the successor to THOMAS.gov, is a collaborative effort by the Library of Congress, Senate, House of Representatives, and the Government Publishing Office. Researchers can now search across all of the content in the system, refine their results, quickly see the status of a bill on a timeline, and view the new Member pages with sponsored and co-sponsored legislation. Additionally, the system is designed to dynamically fit any size screen used: mobile, notebook, and/or computer.
