The Founding Fathers Said...

Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country. – Noah Webster, On the Education of Youth in America, 1788
