The U.S. Congressional Serial Set consists of the all the Reports, Documents and Journals of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives from the 15th Congress (1817) through the 96th (1980), including some post-1816 content published in the American State Papers (a retrospective collection of materials originating from 1789 through 1838 but published in the second quarter of the 19th century). During much of the 19th century, especially in the pre-Civil War era, the Serial Set also included key Executive Department publications that were published only or primarily in the U.S. Congressional Serial Set. The Serial Set constitutes a rich collection of primary source material on all aspects of American history, including approximately 52,000 maps.
