The American Patriot's Almanac... Review

Which president was born with the name Leslie Lynch King Jr.?  Hint: he was born July 14, 1913, in Omaha, Nebraska...
Who was Betty Zane? 
What was the Lost Colony of Roanoke? 
Don't know? 
You'll find the answer to this question and many others in "The American Patriot's Almanac" by William J. Bennett and John T.E. Cribb.  An amazing devotional-style book, there are 365 daily readings with special sections at the end of each month featuring songs of American Patriotism, the Declaration of Independence, the Gettysburg Address, Emancipation Proclamation, Prayers for the American People, State Flags, Facts, and Symbols and much much more!  Interwoven in these stories of great Americans and events is the heart and soul of America... Andrew Jackson, the National Park System, D-Day, the kite that helped freedom fly of 1752, Phillis Wheatley, and 9/11 are just a few.  I can't say enough about how excited I am to have this resource for our family, it will aid ours - and all - families in instilling a sense of true American Patriotism in their children during a time when the original heart of America is being lost with each generation, as well as remind adults of the true spirit on which America was built...
