CONTENTS: American Foundations- 1607-1790
"The United States was founded on a set of beliefs and not, as were other nations, on a common ethnicity, language or religion. Since we are not a nation in any traditional sense of the term, in order to establish our nationhood, we have to reaffirm and reinforce periodically the values of the men who declard independence from Great Britain and framed the Constitution."-Gordon Wood, Constitutional Scholar Brown Univevesity.
