Many young people in America today have very little idea of what life was like during the colonial period. This reader is designed to provide youngsters with a better understanding of how the events and personalities of colonial America affected the lives of young people who lived during this time in history.
It is the hope of the publishers that this book will help to give children a fuller appreciation for the spirit of determination that young people had during the colonial period to support the cause of liberty. Indeed, if liberty is to survive and prosper in our beloved land, the children of America will need to be properly trained to understand and value the blessings of freedom and liberty. It is impossible for the holy light of freedom to burn out as long as it shines brightly in the hearts of a nation’s youth.
