O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!” (excerpt Star Spangled Banner)

Proud and powerful quotes from two of the most widely used documents in America. We have heard of the stories and sacrifices made by many of our brave Founding Fathers. They were not all wild-eyed and rebellious. Some were soft-spoken men, some were educated, some were poor, and some were wealthy. Just who were all these people that contributed to this great nation over time?

Americans have so much to celebrate about their great nation, especially with the upcoming events such as Father’s Day on Sunday 19th June and Independence Day on Monday 4th July.

Now there is a book about their outstanding achievements called Amazing Americans.
