America’s Founding Fathers were not just statesmen—they were intellectuals who knew the importance of their ideas and how best to communicate them to the American public. In the speeches and addresses they made, and in the editorials, essays, and pamphlets they published, we see them expressing the principles by which they wished to define their new nation, and reaching co America’s Founding Fathers were not just statesmen—they were intellectuals who knew the importance of their ideas and how best to communicate them to the American public. In the speeches and addresses they made, and in the editorials, essays, and pamphlets they published, we see them expressing the principles by which they wished to define their new nation, and reaching consensus about the best form of government that would endure and sustain the republic well beyond their own time. Much of what they spoke and wrote gave rise to the laws by which American is still governed today. This volume collects more than forty documents that played a crucial role in spurring the revolt of the thirteen original colonies against their mother country, England, and forging those colonies into the United States of America, a new country whose people shared common goals and interests manifested in the government they had created to uphold the laws of their republic. In these documents, we see the articulation, evolution, and refinement of the democratic ideals by which America is recognized.

    This book should be read by Honors seniors (12th graders) in both public and private high schools throughout the United States. Most young people do not know enough about the history of our Country so when they go to vote, they know very little about what they are voting for or against. Many 21-year-olds on college campuses and elsewhere just choose the candidate that they "like", as though having a drink with him or her would be fun.

Most young people do not know enough about the history of our Country so when they go to vote, they know very little about what they are voting for or against. Many 21-year-olds on college campuses and elsewhere just choose the candidate that they "like", as though having a drink with him or her would be fun. Another reason they might choose a candidate is to get free things, like college tuition. Neither of these points are what is most important in a President and Commander in Chief or any other politician. The words of the brilliant political scientist, historian and politician, Alexis de Tocqueville, on the subject of "government freebies" were as follows: "The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the people with their own money." Furthermore, it is most important that we preserve the Constitution and the Founders Intent. As Daniel Webster, the man who wrote the American English Dictionary, once said, "Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. If the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world."

    It is always amazing to read what those who came before us had to say about the country they knew and what they put in place for the country we have today.

    A great collection of writings by the founding fathers. The constitution of the United States actually takes up a very small portion of the book.
