More than ever, Americans are realizing that if we want to keep this country great, we must be citizen-patriots. And here’s the handbook every citizen-patriot needs: The Essential American, featuring the fundamental documents of our nation’s history.
Compiled by syndicated columnist Jackie Gingrich Cushman and featuring a foreword by her father, best-selling author and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, The Essential American is the ultimate patriot’s resource. Featuring well-known and lesser-known documents and speeches, The Essential American includes the Declaration of Independence; the Constitution; Daniel Webster’s Plymouth Oration; Abraham Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address; Douglas MacArthur’s Duty, Honor, Country speech; Ronald Reagan’s speech at the Brandenburg Gate; and much more!
"Jackie has compiled the speeches and documents you read in history class—or wish you’d read—and introduced each one with interesting historical details and explanations of how it shaped the character of America. Pick up this unique resource for the history of our nation. You’ll return to it again and again as you’re reminded of why you’re proud to be an American.” (Sean Hannity)

Appropriately Titled! EVERY AMERICAN MUST!
The fact that these documents were all assembled and packaged so concisely.
Short, sweet, to the point assessment of what we were about to read/hear.
They got me in the first few minutes. Hated interruptions!
Find a philantopist who would give this audible to EVERY HIGH SCHOOL/or/College Graduate! Or somehow, instead of music in elevators, trains, airplanes, airports, PLAY THIS! Too good to be true! Thank you, Ms. Cushman!
Many speeches I had not heard before
