The Pocket Book of Patriotism
Sterling, 2005 (2005)
Reviewed by Anise Hollingshead
his little book offers exactly what the title advertizes - a pocket-sized book of patriotic facts and dates. It is designed to be a small, handy reference to the main events in American history.
he book is organized logically, and makes it easy to look up dates sorted by years. Though many dates refer to well-known political happenings, some highlight more obscure cultural asides. A section in the back of the book includes selected works of American patriotism, such as songs, poems, quotations, a list of the presidents, and also oaths and pledges.
he Pocket Book of Patriotism
is a nice little book to have around for a quick glance at important dates. It would be useful in a student's backpack, if they're taking American History. The price is reasonable, and the book is attractive and well-bound.
