Sounding Forth The Trumpet
God's Plan for America
by Peter Marshall and David Manual
Sounding Forth the Trumpet brings to life one of the most crucial epochs in our nation's history: the events leading up to and precipitating the Civil War. Relive the frenzy of the Gold Rush, the harsh realities of the Mexican War, the skirmishes of Bleeding Kansas, and the emergence of Abraham Lincoln. Throughout this engaging narrative, the tragic issue of slavery provides focus, from John Quincy Adams' struggle to preserve the right of petition in Congress to the history-changing election of 1860.
"Sounding Forth the Trumpet" (grades 6-12) is a recommended spine book for several TQ guides: " "Age of Revolution 1," and "Age of Revolution 2." What is a "spine book"? Remember, in TruthQuest history, no single book is "required," however, there are a number of books that are referred to to create an educational/historical spine in which your student can "hang" all his new-found knowledge. If you are using TQ history, you may find it helpful to include one or two of these in your study.
