The soul of America is far more than a concept-it is a people. Even the most sacred principles mean very little unless lived out passionately by an informed citizenry. In The Portable Patriot you'll find a carefully assembled sampling of American history's most formative words, written by the people who made that extraordinary history-George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, and many more of America's Founding Fathers. Speeches and sermons, essays and extracts, poems and proclamations illumine such values as independence, virtue, humility, bravery, thrift, prayer, enterprise, liberty, and reliance on God. While peering back to the cradle of America's national identity, The Portable Patriot also points a way forward, compelling us to heed poet John Dickinson's plea to "rouse your bold hearts at fair Liberty's call."


"Nothing ignites a patriot's heart-or the hope that the truths of our founding era will prevail again-like the documents assembled in The Portable Patriot. How grateful we should be, and how quick to make these historic words our own." ?Stephen Mansfield, author, The Forgotten Founding Father and The Faith of the American Soldier


"Our current struggles over taxation, federal debt, and limited government are part of a larger American story. Kudos to Miller and Parrish for highlighting these essential passages." ?Hon. Andrew P. Napolitano, Senior Judicial Analyst, Fox News Channel

What??does it mean to think, believe, and act like an American?
