It’s time to learn and teach the story of America, the best country on earth — one that was founded on the principles of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. In this special show, Mike Slater and his guests celebrate another great generation: those whose blood, sweat, and sacrifice built our nation. Did you know we were this-close to losing the Revolutionary War? Have you ever read Frederick Douglass’ epic speech about slavery and the 4th of July? And what exactly was Thomas Jefferson’s inspiration for the Declaration of Indepence? We are a good country and we can always do better — but that will happen only if we learn from the past.
