Peter Francisco, Austin Dabney, Nancy Morgan Hart, Timothy Murphy. Names you probably have never heard of... twenty-four in all, with stories to remember. Some of the people in this book changed the course of history. All demonstrated courage and fortitude in the face of danger and proved themselves true patriots.
Yes, it's history. No, it's not dry, dusty, boring or irrelevent. In fact, it is very relevant for this generation that is seeing our freedoms assaulted by our own government. We live in a country that is different from every other country in the world. We were founded on faith and freedom and the willingness to fight for those liberties. Rick Santorum is a good story teller and makes this a very interesting read. I'll be sharing it with my children.
This is a book for all Americans.
From Tyndale website:
"The United States of America was founded and established by ordinary citizens just like you and me. In their struggle for independence, these heroic men and women willingly shed their blood, sweat, and tears—often sacrificing their own lives and fortunes in order to hand down the precious legacy of freedom we all enjoy today. Now is the time for a new generation of American patriots to rise up and join in the fight. Now is the time for every American to return to the virtues, values, and ideals that formed our foundation of freedom, and enable America to remain a great nation, a powerful democracy, and a beacon of hope for the world.
American Patriots highlights the heroic men and women who valiantly fought to secure our God-given rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—not only for themselves and their children, but for countless future generations. Their stories are a true reminder of the extraordinary faith, courage, and determination that set this country on the path to greatness centuries ago, and an inspiration for future generations of great American patriots."
