The soul of America is far more than a conceptit is a people. Even the most sacred principles mean very little unless lived out passionately by an informed citizenry. In The Portable Patriot youll find a carefully assembled sampling of American historys most formative words, written by the people who made that extraordinary historyGeorge Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, and many more of America's Founding Fathers. Speeches and sermons, essays and extracts, poems and proclamations illumine such values as independence, virtue, humility, bravery, thrift, prayer, enterprise, liberty, and reliance on God. While peering back to the cradle of Americas national identity, The Portable Patriot also points a way forward, compelling us to heed poet John Dickinsons plea to "rouse your bold hearts at fair Libertys call."
