Understand the Words That Guarantee Our Freedom-and Define Our Nation The Declaration of Independence. The Constitution of the United States. The Bill of Rights and subsequent amendments. The words in these documents are the foundation of our freedom, our democracy-our very way of life in the United States. This book presents the complete texts of these crucial documents-and helps you understand what they mean for us today. Constitutional lawyer Stephen F. Rohde puts the words in context with an incisive look at historical events that surround their creation.

Featuring definitions of archaic and unfamiliar terms throughout, as well as the full text of and commentary on George W. Bush's historic speech of September 20, 2001, American Words of Freedom is an invaluable classroom resource-and an indispensable reference for every home.
