"The Story of..." series is a perfect way to instill patriotic values into the oncoming generation. These books give the factual background behind some of the great icons of American patriotism and history.
"In God We Trust" appeared on coins in America during the Civil War, but it was almost a century later before it was adopted by Congress as our national motto.
Following a legal battle to have the words "under God" removed from the Pledge of Allegiance, President George Bush signed a bill to ensure that this patriotic expression and recognition of the religious foundation of this country remains a legacy for future generations.
