365 reasons to love America! The fife and drum of history mark the time of each passing day. And within their cadence, personalities, conflicts, discoveries, ideas, and nations peal and fade. American history is no different. From the starving time of Jamestown during the Winter of 1609, through the bloody argument of the Civil War, and to today, the United States is a tale best told one day at a time.Best-selling author and educator Dr. William J.

And in The American Patriot's Almanac, Bennett distills the American drama into three hundred sixty-five entries-one for each day of the year. Fascinating in its detail and singular in its grasp of the big themes, Bennett's Almanac will make anyone a fan of history, assembling even some of the most obscure details. Even better, it will make of everyone a patriot.This revised edition includes: A new Preface and updated facts and figures Updates to the American History Parade lists and daily readings New special sections on "Faith and the Founders;" "State Facts and Symbols," with fascinating trivia; and "Fifty American Quotes," containing great quotes about the American spirit.
