  • Moral and Religious Sketches and Collections: With Incidents of Ten Years' Itinerancy in the West (Date?)

  • Volunteer USA (1991)

  • Golden Opportunities: A Volunteer Guide for Americans over 50 (1994)
    Hundreds of rewarding ways to make a difference in your own community and around the world.

  • Letters of a Nation: A Collection of Extraordinary American Letters (1997)
    A unique and timeless collection of extraordinary letters spanning more than 350 years of American history, from the arrival of the Pilgrims to the present day. Many of the more than 200 letters are published here for the first time, and the correspondents are the celebrated and obscure, the powerful and powerless, including presidents, slaves, soldiers, prisoners, explorers, writers, revolutionaries, Native Americans, artists, religious and civil rights leaders, and people from all walks of life. From the serious (Harry Truman defending his use of the atomic bomb) to the surreal (Elvis Presley to Richard Nixon on fighting drugs in America), this collection of letters covers the full spectrum of human emotion, illuminates the American experience, and celebrates the simple yet lasting art of letter writing.

  • In Our Own Words: Extraordinary Speeches of the American Century (1999)
    This bestselling collection of American oratory is the most comprehensive anthology of its kind: a record of twentieth-century America captured in the words that inspired and infuriated, electrified and galvanized its people. Decade by decade, generation to generation, history unfolds in the famous and infamous expressions of Americans from all walks of life: poets and politicians, artists and astronauts, soldiers and sports legends, preachers and pacifists, humorists and hell-raisers.

    In Our Own Words bears witness to the forces that swept our nation -- two World Wars, Prohibition, the Depression, the Cold War, the Civil Rights era, Vietnam, the Reagan era, and beyond -- and features the voices of Barbara Jordan, Barry Goldwater, Bill Clinton, Billy Graham, Booker T. Washington, Cesar Chavez, Charlton Heston, Duke Ellington, Elie Wiesel, Emma Goldman, Frank Zappa, George S. Patton, Helen Keller, J. Edgar Hoover, Jackie Robinson, John F. Kennedy, Joseph McCarthy, Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey, Mark Twain, Martin Luther King Jr., Oliver Wendell Holmes, Orson Welles, Pearl Buck, Rachel Carson, Richard M. Nixon, Ryan White, Theodore Roosevelt, Vince Lombardi, Woodrow Wilson, and dozens of others who tell the story of their age from their podiums and soapboxes, courtrooms and convention halls.

  • War Letters (2001)
    In 1998, Andrew Carroll founded the Legacy Project with the goal of remembering Americans who have served this nation and preserving their letters for posterity. Since then, more than 50,000 war letters discovered in basements, attics, scrapbooks, and old trunks have poured in from around the country. The best of these letters are assembled in this extraordinary collection, offering unprecedented insight into the Civil War, World Wars I and II, Vietnam, Korea, the Cold War, the Persian Gulf, and even the fighting in Somalia and the Balkans.

    Featured here are dramatic accounts of combat written immediately after the most ferocious battles American troops have ever faced; poignant expressions of love by homesick husbands and sweethearts; humorous anecdotes and gripes about insufferable conditions; thoughtful reflections on the nature of warfare; and perhaps most devastating, a startling number of last letters, heartfelt messages penned just hours before the sender was killed.

    War Letters is a testament to the heroic contributions and astonishing literary voices of common soldiers, marines, airmen, and sailors, as well as war nurses, journalists, spies, and chaplains. There are also previously unpublished letters by such legendary figures as William T. Sherman, Clara Barton, Theodore Roosevelt, Ernie Pyle, Helen Keller, Douglas MacArthur, Julia Child, Dwight Eisenhower, Norman Schwarzkopf, and America's first black general, Benjamin O. Davis Sr.

  • War Letters Armed Forces Edition (2002)

  • Behind the Lines: Powerful and Revealing American and Foreign War Letters -- and One Man's Search to Find Them (2005)
    Behind the Lines, like Carroll’s phenomenal national bestseller War Letters, is part of a larger effort to preserve correspondences that are riveting, insightful, and historically significant. But this book is also about Carroll’s journey across the globe to visit the fields of battle where so many of these letters were written, meet with veterans and active duty troops who generously agreed to share their private correspondence, and speak with family members of those who have lost their loved ones to combat. Behind the Lines is a tribute to those who have fought—and continue to fight—for freedom, as well as a lasting reminder to present and future generations of the true nature of warfare and the sacrifices it demands of individuals, families, and entire nations.

  • Behind the Lines: Powerful and Revealing American and Foreign War Letters--and One Man's Search to Find Them (2006)
    Andrew Carroll spent three years traveling throughout the United States and around the world to seek out the most powerful and unforgettable letters ever written during American wars.

  • Operation Homecoming: Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Home Front, in the Words of U.S. Troops and Their Families (2006 release)

  • Grace Under Fire: Letters of Faith in Times of War (2007 release)
