    What were the principles of freedom for which the Founders had sacrificed their lives and their fortunes? What is the American dream?

    Collected here are stories about our rich American heritage that we share; stories that are meant to unify us whether young or old, rich or poor, majority or minority.

    From American heroes such as George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, to perhaps lesser known heroes such as Chief Massasiot, Adam Smith, William Bradford, or Alexander Hamilton, readers will be reminded of the sacrifices, courage, and character of those from early American history.  But this volume is far more than a series of lessons about individuals, it is an examination and reminder of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the principles of freedom accompanied by questions meant to encourage free thinking and analysis.  

    This rich collection or stories, lessons, historical documents, and analysis is an essential guide to learning the principles of American freedom and liberty.  Ideal for students ages 10 to 16, this American history book is also wonderful reading for anyone who wants to learn more about the birth of a great nation.
