The History of America
In “Democracy in America” Alexis de Tocqueville noted that Americans of that time were far more knowledgeable about government and the issues of the day than their counterparts in Europe.
Tocqueville wrote “every citizen receives the elementary notions of human knowledge; he is taught, moreover, the doctrines and the evidences of his religion, the history of his country, and the leading features of its Constitution”.
The founders knew that only an educated populace, jealous of their rights, would be strong enough to resist the usurpation of their liberties by government. Today many people know nothing of our true history, or the source of our rights.
The mission of The Federalist Papers Project is to get people the history they never got in school and to motivate them to push back at the erosion of our liberties and restore constitutionally limited small government.
