were the principles of freedom for which the Founders had sacrificed their
lives and their fortunes? What is the American dream?
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.
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.
rich collection or stories, lessons, historical documents, and analysis is an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.
