The first offering in a quintet of books spanning nearly 800 years of history of America, leading up to the present day political, economic and moral abyss that we seem to be stuck in today.

We read commentary from people like Bruce Catton, and read the words of the Mayflower Compact, Articles of Confederation, the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights and others - as we discover our early years and the path, which we set upon.

Britain was strengthened by the American Revolution, even though it resulted in the loss of her thirteen colonies that would eventually become the United States. Both she and the United States, ultimately, resolved the last of a conflict in Anglo-Saxon society that had raged since the Tudors: Do governments have a right to rule, or a duty? Is society the master of an economic structure, or a servant or product of it?

Thomas Paine is in our estimation the least appreciated of the founding fathers of America. More than anything or anyone else, his writings were responsible for the colonies' united decision to break from England. The two works he conceived and published in Boston in 1776, Common Sense and The American Crisis, were responsible for the Continental Congresses united decision to serve King George with the Declaration of independence and to immediately begin the Colonial Revolution. He wrote, “As a long and violent abuse of power is generally the means of calling the right of it in question, (and... had not the sufferers been aggravated into the inquiry,) and as the king of England ha ...

These songs were extremely popular during the Civil War. Unheard for over a century and a half, they were a vital part of life during their time. They tell the day-to-day stories of lives, desires, opinions, politics, and feelings of the people, stories that can't be found in history books. Originally published without music notation - lyrics only - as song sheets, broadsides and in songsters. The melodies have been carefully researched for accuracy, then adapted and arranged by Ed Swanzey, professional musician and history buff, and descendant of a Civil War veteran. Written here in modern notation with chord symbols, and transposed for easy play by period and modern folk instru ...

Hidden Facts of the Founding Era Bill Fortenberry

Size: 6" x 9"
Binding: Perfect Bound
Have you ever wondered how some authors can claim that the founding fathers of America were Christians while other authors claim that those very same founders were atheists, deists or even theistic rationalists? In this artfully written volume, Christian apologist and debater Bill Fortenberry examines several of the quotes from our founding fathers that are frequently used to argue against the Christian heritage of America. In doing so, Mr. Fortenberry opens up to us a treasury of facts about our nation's founding that have been hidden by modern scholarship.

The Americans of the Revolutionary War period had to make decisions that most present-day people could not fathom. Their environment was rife with backstabbers, ne’er-do-wells, Indians and schemers; all, of whom, wanted something from them. They worked hard to take a tract of land and develop a homestead and then they had to consider if the men went off to war, could the women protect themselves and their property. War fractures economies and forces massive population dislocations. Misery befell families who were in the way of advancing armies. Even with strict warnings against such behavior from officers on both sides, farms and homes were often pillaged. Soldiers stole grain, livestoc ...

Following the French and Indian War many colonists had grave reservations regarding Britain's decision to keep an army in America following and virtually all Americans were opposed to Parliament's effort to have them finance that army through taxation. Americans petitioned against the 1764 Sugar Act, which created an import tax, and the 1765 Stamp Act, which inflicted direct taxes on each piece of printed paper including legal documents, licenses, newspapers, playing cards, other publications, and ship's papers. What made the law so odious was not so much its direct cost, but the standard it was setting. The Americans contended that Parliament could not tax them, because they had no repr ...
