Reading List




We here in the United States are at another one of those crossroads where our future will be decided by those who know something about this country, its history, and how our government works. Far too many of us know very little about who we are, how we came to be, and why we really are an exceptional nation. I’ve come to the point where I decided it was time to start promulgating a list of books that I think most Americans need to read. As more tomes of great significance come to mind or into my possession, I will list them here.
