Sweet Land of Liberty by Charles C Coffin
"Sweet Land of Liberty" was first published in 1881 by the title "Old Times in the Colonies". This reprint is opens with an introduction by the author (Charles Coffin) stating, "The history of a nation is like the flowing of a river...Many of the fountain-heads of American history are in England and Europe; and in order to obtain a correct view of what transpired in the colonies, we must cross the Atlantic and follow the rivulets to their sources. The tracing of the relationship of one event to another, and showing their effect upon the human race, is the philosophy of history, and by studying the philosophy we are able to arrive at some conclusion as to its meaning." Coffin attempts to create this chain for his readers, connecting events from the distant past to events in our recent past, starting with Christopher Columbus to the French and Indian War (300 years). While depicting the seeming triumph of evil over the ages, he demonstrates the relentless hand of God's grace forever at work "behind the scenes." This book overlaps the same time period as its predecessor "The Story of Liberty," filling in some of the gaps. If you and your kids enjoy old reprints, you'll enjoy this book
"Sweet Land of Liberty" (grades 6-12) is a recommended spine book for TQ guides "Renaissance/Reformation," and "Age of Revolution 1." 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. This book would also provide support for Mystery of History 2 and Mystery of History 3.
