Conservative historian LARRY SCHWEIKART, author of A Patriot’s History of the United States, will introduce his newest book, Seven Events That Made America America: And Proved That the Founding Fathers Were Right All Along. He reveals the profound ways in which our nation was influenced by seven pivotal, yet shamefully ignored, episodes in our country’s history. He doesn’t merely recount our history--he forces us to rethink what makes our country great. He shows how individual liberty, private enterprise, and small government helped build a free and prosperous nation. Conversely, whenever these values have been threatened by big government, oppressive taxes, and special interests, we lose sight of the principles that made us strong.
Larry Schweikart has written 48 Liberal Lies About American History, America’s Victories: Why the U.S. Wins Wars and Will Win the War on Terror, and American Entrepreneur: The Fascinating Stories of the People Who Defined Business in the United States. He has also written many academic books and articles on national defense, business, and financial history. He is a professor of history at the University of Dayton, and appears regularly as a guest commentator on Fox News.
