There has been an increased frequency and an almost urgent drumbeat of stories reporting a lack of knowledge of Civics and American History in our schools. Even comedians have highlighted this issue while embarking in random questioning of adults in various settings. When quizzed about American History and Civics....the answer given may be incorrect (and pretty funny), but the point is made...there's a knowledge deficit and room for improvement! While this may seem amusing at first, when you really think about it, it's not so funny.
Our Sixteenth President, Abraham Lincoln, said..."I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any National crisis.The great point is to bring them the real facts..." This book brings you the facts. The Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights; facts about Early America, the Original Thirteen Colonies, U.S. Presidents, the fifty states, National Symbols, U.S. Wars and more are included. Facts presented will help you have more understanding of the questions and answers on the topics covered by the civics test. Over 50 pages of historic sketches add an additional visual dimension in appreciation of our history.
