The Foundations Of American Government by David Barton

5 of 5 stars  *****

This companion transcript for the video by the same name is a refreshing return to the truth in History; in particular, the First Amendment and the Separation of Church and State.  These issues are in the scope of politics and social reform today.  It is important to return to the beginning, when the First Amendment becomes the introduction to the United States Bill of Rights, to learn the intentions of the founding fathers along with their desires to keep any one religion from ruling America.  This transcript also points out that there are those who wish to distort history to sway populations toward their own political  agendas.

David Barton's scholarly work employs his excellent collection of old and priceless books written by the hands of the remarkable men of their day.  The onus is upon each individual, today, to verify that which is taught in schools.  David Barton's collection of DVD's and books can be found on his website with this transcript and DVD set being a part of Building On The American Heritage Series.
