Reading and Viewing List
The Great American Constitutional Revival
Here is a list of credible writers and producers of excellent material on our Nations founding.
If you are just starting out or if you have never read the book The Making of America by W. Cleon Skousen then that is an excellent place to start. He covers the basic history of America and then goes through the Constitution and tells you, point by point, what it means and gives quotes by the founders as to why it was written.
If you don’t have the time to read or don’t like to read, then an excellent place to start is the DVD The American Birthright, and also George Washington, America’s Authentic Superhero by Stephen Millet (these are available on our website). This will give you an excellent background on how and why America was settled, who settled it and how the Revolutionary War came about, and the overall details on how we became a Nation. It covers who was involved and what it means to you as an American.
Understanding the past helps put much better perspective on the future. And can begin to help you see what went wrong to get us in the trouble we are today.
