- United States Declaration of Independence - Thomas Jefferson See Wikipedia's article on United States Declaration of Independence
- Gettysburg Address - Abraham Lincoln
- Common Sense - Thomas Paine
- Seneca Falls Convention Declaration of Sentiments - primarily Elizabeth Cady Stanton
- I Have a Dream speech - Martin Luther King, Jr.
- Ain't I A Woman? speech - Sojourner Truth
