The Pocket Patriot

By George Grant

G.K. Chesterton once quipped that America is the only nation ever founded on a creed. While other nations focus on ethnicity, geography, ideology or tradition, America was founded on certain ideas about freedom, human dignity and social responsibility. The profound peculiarity was what most struck Alexis de Tocqueville when he visited in the early 19th century.

About the same time, American educators began to realize that if their experiment in liberty was to succeed, informed patriotism must be instilled in the young. Thus rising citizens were presented with a small handbook, a brief guide to the essential elements of the American Creed.

"The Pocket Patriot: An Introduction to the Principles of Freedom" is an updated version of that vaunted tradition. A citizenship primer for a new generation of Americans, it includes such documents as The Mayflower Compact, Patrick Henry's "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death" speech, The Declaration of Independence, biographies of the Founding Fathers, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the amendments to the Constitution, "The Star-Spangled Banner" and short biographical sketches of the lives of the presidents. A concise introduction to the foundational ideas, documents, events and personalities of American freedom. It is an ideal resource for citizens contemplating the direction they wish the nation to take during the pivotal years to come.
