Americana A Civics Handbook, Second Edition is new and improved. With about 100 additional pages, there is so much more information! As in the first edition, there is a concise, chronological accounting, focusing on the early years of America. Included are narrative facts from Colonial times and the Revolutionary War era, leading up to the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, as well as the Bill of Rights. Also included is information about the Presidents, First Ladies, the Original Thirteen Colonies, Three Branches of Government, the Fifty States, National Symbols, Electoral College and more. Additionally, the U.S. Citizenship Test of 100 questions (with and without the answers) is newly included, and is excellent for civics studies as well an an aid to citizenship studies. There is a special note on the National Parks…their history and how they preserve our American heritage. There are so many sites of historic importance as well as areas of natural beauty preserved for our benefit. There are lists of the National Parks related to Colonial and Revolutionary War times, Sites of Remembrance (for our Veterans), and of our most cherished National Parks. There are over 50 pages of historical sketches and images – with new images and more descriptions about them. Book is 8.5″ x 11″ with better and larger images. There is so much more in this Second Edition. Everyone should have a copy!
“I love this book”
Five Star Review on Amazon By barbara
I love this book. It’s full of information in friendly, fun format. The references validate the information and the organization is so sensible. The Citizenship test is an added pleasure, kind of a trivial learning game. I like this book so much, already gifted it and plan to continue gifting it as occasions allow. Want to learn the foundations of our nation? This book provides so much information you won’t be sorry.
