Wow. That about says it all about this book. If you want a great way to see the scope of American history, a little at a time, get this book. The American Patriot’s Almanac offers tidbits of American history for each day of the year. You get a main essay about a significant event in American history, followed by a handful of headline events that took place on that date.
What I really liked about this book is that it covers the entire history of America, from the founding until today. Also, the even essay on each page is easy to read and is a great addition to your day. I plan on reading each page with my family, every day, starting Jan. 1. So you have a couple of weeks to go out and get your own copy and make American History a part of your family.

I saw the author of the book on Fox last night and was impressed. He seems like a very genuine Patriot.
I’m not a big Hannity-watcher, but I actually appreciated the discussion (through the crosstalk) and was surprised to find Jill (NY Housewife) a welcome voice.
