A little less BBQ and a lot more American History for Independence Day

I highly recommend celebrating Independence Day by reading, “The Quartet – Orchestrating the Second American Revolution” by Joseph J. Ellis,   followed by The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution, The Bill of Rights, and The Gettysburg Address, if you’ve not read them recently.

All of these are must reads if you really want perspective on the thinking behind the early creation and growth of our great Republic. I think The Quartet will provide some surprises about the founders motives and objectives that we never learned in History class, but Ellis will certainly give you better insight into what it took to create the United States of America out of a Confederation of States that had little interest in joining a Union and giving power to a Federal Government.

Enjoy and Happy Independence Day. God Bless America.
