Richard Frethorne Letter
One of the devices I like to use with US history students is primary documents as I find the liven up what is often a boring textbook. One of my favorites is Richard Frethorne's letter to his parents as an indentured servant in Virginia in 1623. He describes wanting to trade his arm for being back in England, but instead died a few months after he wrote the letter.
