The American Patriot's Almanac


The American Patriot's Almanac by William J. Bennett and John T.E. Cribb, published by Thomas Nelson, was everything I expected and more!  This newly revised, updated and expanded almanac includes a slice of our great country's history alongside the daily "American History Parade."

I enjoyed reading through the historical events which left such in impact on our country.  My whole family enjoyed looking up their birthday to see who had the most exciting historical events. 

Since we are learning US History this year, we have been able to review such documents as: The Declaration of Independence (and how it was written and signed), The Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights, and the American Creed - just to name of few.

Each year our students in the public schools are learning a different US History from previous generations.  This Almanac helps bridge that gap and gives an insight into the Christian founding principles of America. 

Per the author, "Our nation's founding principles of liberty and equality are among humanity's noblest aspirations.  As long as the United States is a place dedicated to those principles, then to be an American patriot is to love something noble and good.  By loving America, we lift our own sights."  Let us be a country filled with PATRIOTS who love this country, take pride in what America has accomplished, are active in their communities, and are involved in the election process - voting, reading up on the issues, and being an active participant.

Join in on the US History revolution... take your dose of US History daily alongside your multivitamin!
