    Another patriotic book from Wallbuilders, this one is a reprint of the book originally published in 1848 by American historian B.J. Lossing. It looks like a reprint, too, in both font and illustration. The original language is unchanged; for instance, the first chapter, in discussing Josiah Bartlett of New Hampshire, states that he practiced medicine, "his business soon became lucrative, and he amassed a competency." I'm not sure what a competency is, and my Webster's American Family Dictionary doesn't define this word – I suppose his net worth increased. But by and large, the text is quite understandable.

    About two-thirds of the book is what you would expect it to be from the title. Each of the 56 signers of the Declaration get about three to five pages of biographical text. The facts of each man's life are presented in a straightforward manner. The remaining third of the book is a discussion of the Declaration of Independence and some of the major events that brought it about. Next, the Articles of Confederation is presented, again including discussion of the surrounding history. Then, the Constitution is printed, also with historical context. Finally, if you've been dying to read the Stamp Act, that hated piece of legislation forced on the colonies, it is here too.

    This book will give insights into this collection of gifted leaders to which we owe our freedom and rich history. sc, 384 pgs.

     The true story of American independence will never grow old, as long as their remains a hunger for freedom in the souls of men...and this book tells that story well. Students of U.S. history will enjoy this illustrated book, for it tells the story of the long struggle for American independence and liberty in a concise and engaging manner. Beginning with some of the early efforts towards independence, such as the opposition to the stamp tax by men such as Patrick Henry, as well as the famous Boston Tea Party rebellion, the text proceeds to chronicle many of the major events that led the colonists to the place where they were willing to establish their own sovereign nation. This volume would be an excellent reference tool or unit study for middle school or junior-high level students who are studying the War for American Independence. 82 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    Nationally revered, this great document of our American freedoms has had quite the exciting life. Today it is protected by armed guards, twenty-four hour a day cameras, electronic monitors, and a sealed, bulletproof encasement containing argon to control humidity.

Carried by horseback, sailing vessel, mail truck, railroad car and even military tank, our Declaration of Independence has survived for more than two centuries of peace and devastating war.

    With so many American history books these days being stripped of any reference to God or the importance of His laws as the foundation of our nation, it is refreshing to have a book that digs into the real history of the founders. This book digs. The series examines the lives and faith of the signers of the Declaration of Independence (19 in Volume 1 and the remaining 37 will be covered in Volume 2) and, when complete (three volumes) will also include the 39 signers of the Constitution. The introduction to Volume 1 sets the stage by looking at the evidences of faith from each colony, their charters, the continental congresses, and even the proposals for the Great Seal. The individual profiles of the signers, integrating many quotes and ranging in length from 5 to 18 pages, provide a biography of each, his legacy, and a look at the evidence of his faith. Also included is his signature, his colony/state, his church affiliation, plus one more interesting designation – his score on Combs Informal Scale of Christian Devotion. This last is the author’s own rating that ranges from 1 (Not Devout) to 5 (Makes Billy Graham look like an atheist).

    Examples of a strong faith-based beginning to our country are evident in more than just the lives/beliefs of the founding fathers. In fact, there are evidences everywhere – the Declaration of Independence, The Gettysburg Address, colonial charters, proclamations, days of prayer and fasting, state constitutions, marching songs and even the Liberty Bell. This book has been carefully researched and is fully footnoted.

    Fascinating and encouraging, even inspiring reading, this book does not, however, gloss over one of the glaring criticisms of “the signers.” In a short essay, the author considers the signers and their view of slavery. Obviously, a complicated subject, he provides an insightful discussion. 296 pgs, pb ~ Janice

    If you want to get a real feel for the early years of our country, this book would be a great place to look. Everything about the book has the look of antiquity: pages with darkened edges, period paintings used as graphics, even reproductions of documents from the time. Text is focused in two-page segments on major topics, with interesting insets about famous people and events. Read about George Washington being chosen to lead the Continental army, the winter at Valley Forge, victory at Yorktown, the Lewis and Clark expedition, and the War of 1812. Document reproductions are contained in pouches that resemble a stained and worn "Old Glory" flag. Reproductions are many and varied; a few examples are the Constitution in handwritten script on parchment-like paper, the resolution passing the first 10 amendments to the Constitution (the Bill of Rights), and a letter to Meriwether Lewis from President Thomas Jefferson. 63 pgs, hc with magnetic closure.
