In The Essential American: 25 Documents and Speeches Every American Should Own, Jackie Gingrich Cushman has compiled a guide to the great documents and speeches that have stood as beacons to successive generations, expressing what it is to be an American. Starting with the crucial documents of our founding, Cushman introduces and explores each speech and document in its historical context, explaining why it belongs in the American canon. Some—like General Douglas MacArthur’s immortal “Duty, Honor, Country” speech or Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address—were obvious selections. Others are less well-known, like Captain Mosley Baker’s speech at San Jacinto, which urged Texans fighting for their lives to “Remember the Alamo!” The Essential American: 25 Documents and Speeches Every American Should Own highlights different aspects of America’s character. Reflections on America’s origins, like Calvin Coolidge’s “Inspiration of the Declaration of Independence” and Daniel Webster’s “Discourse, Delivered at Plymouth” were delivered in times of peace and prosperity. General Dwight D. Eisenhower’s “Order of the Day” on D–Day, FDR’s address to Congress after Pearl Harbor was attacked, and President George W. Bush’s speech after 9/11 were the powerful responses of leadership to the crises of the hour." Please visit www.blogtalkradio.com/everydayRADIO for all show archives.
