ORIGINAL INTENT by David Barton

Are you looking for an accurate account of our history? Our constitution? Our founding fathers? If so, Original Intent is the book for you. I have heard many history lovers say this is their favorite book outside the bible. I now see why. This book contains everything one would desire to know about our constitution. It's the hows, whys, whens and wheres of those who built this country with faith and determination. Did you know there were fifty six signers of the Declaration of Independence? We not only read of those names that are well known, but those we are not familiar with. One thing that stands out for me is the humility of David Barton. He shares that although his name is on the cover, there are countless people who helped bring this book alive. This book holds valuable detail about those who helped bring this country we call home to fruition. It is our responsibility to know about our country, our courts, our documents that are so often taken out of context. David Barton takes us on a ride through history and to our present day. This is one book we should be honored to read and go back to for information. In order for us to move forward, we must look back to where we came from. And that is exactly what David Barton does here within these pages. Articles, amendments, and the original intent of our constitution is covered throughout this book. This is the "Bible" of our country. This would also be a great addition to your home school collection of books, even a study among those who love history and want to know more.
This book was a gift from David Barton for it's review.
