America's historical legacy is disappearing. Revisionism infected college instruction and the by-product has been over 40 years of undermining the roots of our nation and glossing over the significance and miracle of our beginning. Sadly, most young Americans are unaware of what the Fourth of July celebrates, much less have any fundamental understanding of our Founding Documents. Our form of government, a republic, demands an educated citizenry; the very survival of our nation depends on it. This book begins with coverage of why Christianity split from Judaism, then continues with the Apostle Paul introducing the Faith into Europe. The story of America is presented in "cause and effect" relationship as Gutenberg's invention mass produces the Bible, Luther starts the Protestant movement, the King of England forms his own church, Puritans object to the infiltration of secularism, and the new land called "America" offers an economic opportunity for rich and poor alike, as well as a haven for Christians seeking freedom of worship. Colonists once fiercely proud to be part of the British Empire object to the loss of rights granted to every Englishman, and tensions build over a twelve year time span until the eventual consequence comes to fruition - the American Revolution. Thomas Jefferson is given the task of crafting a letter to the British, as well as to the People of America, explaining the reasons for separation in the Declaration of Independence - which this book explains in detail. From 1775 until 1781, a ragtag band of men eventually become the Continental Army under the leadership of George Washington but face superior troops who have the financial backing, provision, and training of what was then considered the most powerful army in the world. It is an "all or nothing" War of Independence, that if not won, will result in colonial submission to England and the execution of leaders such as George Washington, Samuel Adams, John Adams, John Hancock, and Patrick Henry - men of power, prestige, and wealth - yet willing to sacrifice everything for the good of their countrymen. The sweet smell of victory is short-lived as the fledgling nation nearly falls apart between 1783 and 1787. The book ends with coverage of the Constitutional Convention, the eventual blueprint for America, and a paraphrasing of the entire document designed to help 21st century readers understand the meaning of America's most important document - the US Constitution. Having spent 30 years in public school programs, author, James Brigleb, knows how to present material in a manner that students can understand and follow. This book provides the most critical aspect of our country's history - a solid foundation of events leading to our independence and creation of the US Constitution. In these pages, readers will hear a voice speaking directly to them, laced with passion, insight, knowledge, and humor. It is NOT a dry textbook. Difficult concepts are paraphrased, analogies are offered to simplify and modernize situations to facilitate understanding, and questions are posed in a manner that offer a sense that Brigleb is right there with them, becoming a companion to their learning. Anyone seeking to understand America's beginnings and foundation - from 5th grade through adulthood - will find this book serves as an excellent resource at an unbelievably low price.
