How George Washington survived so many close encounters with the Grim Reaper - in the wilderness frontier, on the battlefield, from serious illness, and in terrifying accidents - can be read only in the story of a steady succession of miracles. For the incredible fact that he survived all of these encounters (except of course the last) to live sixty-seven years is a consummation for which untold millions can be eternally grateful. For it was Washington who with the success of the Revolution and the leadership provided through two terms as President brought forth upon this continent an entirely new way of life. This society, governed as it now was by a spirited reverence for freedom and guaranteed by documents revolutionary in their principles, must have startled the Old World.

This book provides the essential, primary documentation needed to clarify, readjust, and, in some cases, destroy the many commonly held myths of America's colonial past. America's past is in many respects misunderstood and distorted. Even our secondary-level and college classrooms are not always capable of correcting the common misconceptions about Columbus and his discovery; Jamestown, John Smith, and Pocahontas; the Salem Witch Trials; and even the American Revolution. What is often lacking in texts on these events and people is a narrative with a solid underpinning of primary sources that clearly explains how misconceptions began, how they were perpetuated, and finally how they made their way into contemporary American popular culture. Colonial America: Facts and Fictions separates myth from reality. The authors explore 10 popular myths about the period, each of which is examined in terms of its origin and how it became ensconced in American memory. It uses primary sources to explain the evolution of the myths and to inform readers about what actually happened. This book explains all of this, and most importantly exposes the modern reader to those essential primary source documents that clarify the distortions and disprove the popular misconceptions of the past.

Through Three Miracles...Pulling the Sail in Together and Resetting "The Middle of the Political Spectrum" by Mary Ali America is more than two and a half centuries old now. Since she won her independence in 1776, the world witnessed her rapid growth as the largest democracy and a powerful country with a strong economy. However, since the last quarter of the twentieth century, there seemed to be a steady decline of its status both as a world power and a world economy. The twenty-first century greeted her with bigger problems, particularly the September 11, 2001 bombing of the World Trade Center in New York, the ongoing war against terrorism, and the collapse of the stock market in 2008. Hope seems to dim as years pass by. Is there still a way to save America? Mary E. Ali concludes the way to reform America by returning to the middle of the political spectrum-something that the Founding Fathers of America had determined when they made the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. Since the Progressive movement in the late 1890s through the 1920s, the American government is applying Marxist principles where it encroaches on the unalienable rights of people as a way to equalize the haves and the havenots, with consequences that shattered the basic unit of the country-the American family. The author believes that America should return to "In God We Trust" and a Republic, where big government returns the power to the people and the president is not the leader of the masses but the leader of the union of sovereign states. And then American, again, would be called "The Light Up On A Hill" for other nations. About the Author Mary E. Ali is a devout Christian, a faithful wife for more than twenty-five years, and a loving mother of two children. She received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Education and Health from Slippery Rock University. She pursued another degree in physical therapy at the University of Pittsburgh and Doctor of Physical Therapy from Boston University. She was also certified as a specialist in geriatric physical therapy through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists. Another certification in Leadership Development was awarded to her by the Section on Health Policy & Administration (HPA) of the American Physical Therapy Association.

A historian’s “revealing and much-needed retelling of the writing of the Declaration of Independence and the events that led up to it” (William D. Watkins, author of The New Absolutes). Tying American history to our current political climate, The Founders’ Revolution is designed to help readers understand the principles embedded in the Declaration of Independence. The book unpacks the intent of the Founding Fathers in drafting the document, and the historical circumstances surrounding its development. Every charge and every paragraph of the Declaration of Independence is discussed with supporting evidence coming from the original words of the Founding Fathers and other original source documents. The Founders’ Revolution also makes astute comparisons between actions taken by America’s current federal government and those taken by the King of England at the time of the Declaration, showing how our founding document and its principles are still applicable today. In this revealing history, readers will rediscover the forgotten treasures of the Declaration of Independence, recognizing the dedication of the Founding Fathers to the principles written down.
