The soul of the USA is much greater than a concept—it is a people.  Even the main sacred ideas suggest little or no except lived out passionately by way of an educated citizenry. In The transportable Patriot you’ll discover a conscientiously assembled sampling of yankee history’s so much formative phrases, written by means of the folk who made that awesome historical past. Speeches and sermons, essays and extracts, poems and proclamations illumine such values as independence, advantage, humility, bravery, thrift, prayer, firm, liberty, and reliance on God. whereas peering again to the cradle of America’s nationwide id, The transportable Patriot also issues a fashion ahead, compelling us to heed poet John Dickinson’s plea to “rouse your daring hearts at reasonable Liberty’s call.”

 “Nothing ignites a patriot’s heart—or the desire that the truths of our founding period will succeed again—like the records assembled in The transportable Patriot. How thankful we should always be, and the way quickly to make those ancient phrases our own.” ?Stephen Mansfield, writer, The Forgotten Founding Father and The religion of the yankee Soldier

“Our present struggles over taxation, federal debt, and constrained executive are a part of a bigger American tale. Kudos to Miller and Parrish for highlighting those crucial passages.” ?Hon. Andrew P. Napolitano, Senior Judicial Analyst, Fox information Channel
