Book Reflections: American Patriots: Answering the Call to Freedom

American Patriots: Answering the Call to Freedom, written by Rick Santorum is a fun, quick read.

I supported Rick Santorum for president back in 2012, because he best represented my political and social views.  I actually got to meet Rick Santorum at a campaign event in Greensville, SC, which was a really great experience.  He is a genuinely good man with a really impressive family.  He campaigned on Faith, Family, and Freedom.  His love of country is only surpassed by his love of God and his family.  He is very knowledgeable about the history of the United States of America.  He sincerely believes and supports the founding fathers and their vision for this country.  He reveres the Constitution and Declaration of Independence.  He has a great appreciation for the sacrifices made by many patriots during the American Revolution.

American Patriots: Answering the Call to Freedom is in some ways a brief American history lesson.  Rick Santorum does not go into a lot of detail in the lives of the people written about in this book, but he does expose you to several people you probably never heard of that supported the cause of freedom.  Many of these people were ordinary citizens that were able to accomplish extraordinary things.  Sometimes it is the little things that often get overlooked that mean the most.  This is a great lesson not just when reading about the American Revolution, but also something to remember in our daily lives.

Any person with even a little interest in American history should enjoy this book.

God Bless!
