American Patriots: Answering the Call to Freedom

Here’s the lowdown on Rick Santorum’s latest projecta work that Glenn Beck calls “a beautifully written, inspiring look at the forgotten heroes whose unparalleled bravery laid the foundation for our country. It’s hard to read this book and not be reminded that the ‘shining city’ still resides within each one of us.”

The United States of America was founded and established by ordinary citizens just like you and me. In their struggle for independence, these heroic men and women willingly shed their blood, sweat, and tears—often sacrificing their own lives and fortunes in order to hand down the precious legacy of freedom we all enjoy today.

Now is the time for a new generation of American patriots to rise up and join in the fight, Santorum argues. Now is the time for every American to return to the virtues, values, and ideals that formed our foundation of freedom and enable America to remain a great nation, a powerful democracy, and a beacon of hope for the world.

One of the most unique aspects (and pleasant surprises) of American Patriots is that it doesn’t tread down familiar pathways—the legendary names and episodes from our nation’s birth, indeed which will never be forgotten, are not recounted here.

Instead Santorum takes a look at the true-life accounts of 25 unsung, heroic men and women from the Revolutionary War era. These citizen patriots fought valiantly and made significant sacrifices to secure our God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—not only for themselves, but also for countless future generations.

Here’s Santorum speaking with Glenn on the radio about his new book as well as the Romney-Obama debates:

Their stories that encompass American Patriots are reminders of the extraordinary faith, courage, and determination that set this country on the path to greatness centuries ago, and an inspiration for future generations of great American patriots.
