Summary
"Americans by birth or by choice, we are all united by the common civic values expressed in our founding documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. This common civic identity binds us together as one nation. The Citizen's Almanac, a collection of America's most cherished symbols of freedom and liberty, serves as a modern day lifeline to our rich civic history. From historic speeches to landmark Supreme Court decisions, The Citizen's Almanac offers a fascinating look into the fundamental civic values that have helped shape the country we know today. In The Citizen's Almanac, both native-born and naturalized citizens will find important information on the rights and responsibilities associated with United States citizenship. Becoming an active participant in our system of government further strengthens our great democracy. As former Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis once said, "The only title in our democracy superior to that of President [is] the title of citizen." Through civic participation and further learning about our country, its founding ideals, achievements, and history, America's newest generation of citizens will enjoy the fruits of responsible citizenship for years to come"--Page 4 of cover
