The Role of Providence in the Founding of America

99 Important Events that Shaped

by Robert Gingrich

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Nearly all of the preeminent explorers, settlers, Founding Fathers, and those who came after them, are on record as believing in God's Providential involvement in the discovery and establishment of the United States of America. Due either to neglect or design, too many of those facts haven't been taught in our public schools for several decades. Because of that lack of teaching, large numbers of modern Americans are woefully ill-informed regarding their glorious history, an important subject where the future security and direction are concerned. What has been taught has often been history revised to advance the agenda of people and organizations with questionable political motives. Anyone reading "The Role of Providence in the Founding of America" will know more accurate early American history than most of their fellow citizens including those charged with teaching it to our children. In ninety-nine short chapters it covers over four hundred years of formative American history from 1492 to 1899. When contemplating our future, it is a good idea to remember these words of Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States: "A wholesome regard for the memory of the great men of long ago is the best assurance to a people of a continuation of great men to come, who shall be able to instruct, to lead, and to inspire. A people who worship at the shrine of true greatness will themselves be truly great."
Description
When read as entertainment, stories about the discovery of America, our miraculous founding, and our extraordinary development as the greatest country in the world, are more interesting and exciting than most fiction ever written. Those who choose not to delve into early American history re depriving themselves of the opportunity to vicariously experience the series of world-changing events that produced such an exceptional nation. Nearly all of the preeminent explorers, early settlers, Founding Fathers, and those who came after them are on record as believing in God's Providential involvement in the discovery and establishment of the United States of America. Due either to neglect or design, too many of those facts haven't been taught in our public schools for several decades. Because of that lack of teaching, large numbers of modern Americans are woefully ill-informed regarding their glorious history, an important subject where our future security and direction are concerned. What has been taught has often been history revised to advance the agenda of people and organizations with questionable political motives. Anyone reading "The Role of Providence in the Founding of America" will know more accurate early American history than most of their fellow citizens including those charged with teaching it to our children. In ninety-nine short chapters, it covers over four hundred years of formative American history from 1492 to 1899, but the approach is different in several ways from most books on early American history in that: (1) the chapters are short, (.2) many important people and events not generally mentioned in modern textbooks are included, (3) the style is journalistic rather than academic for easier reading and comprehension, and (4) the chapters do not have to be read in any particular order -- readers can choose topics of special interest which will allow them to enjoy the book in easy-to-remember nuggets. When contemplating our future, it is a good idea to remember these words of Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States: "A wholesome regard for the memory of the great men of long ago is the best assurance to a people of a continuation of great men to come, who shall be able to instruct, to lead, and to inspire. A people who worship at the shrine of true greatness will themselves be truly great."
About the author
Bob Gingrich is a freelance writer, a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism, a former US Navy officer, a former marketing executive, and a concerned father and grandfather. He is also author of a previous book entitled ""Faith & Freedom: The Founding Fathers in Their Own Words."" The concern defining his goal as a writer is generated by a deep love of country and by a passionate desire to preserve the freedoms and opportunities from which Americans have greatly benefited. Gingrich believes our future security and prosperity depend upon our continued public acknowledgment of God as our provider and protector and that the Bible must be restored to its rightful place of honor and authority. Too many Americans, he is convinced, don't know their own history. This book is intended as a tool to help correct a serious lack of basic knowledge of our unique history, especially among our younger generations.
