How much do you know about the meaning and history of civil rights in America?
If you’re like most Americans—especially our youngest citizens—you probably only learned about a few important stories spread across the long history of our great nation.
That’s why we’re launching our latest free online course, “Civil Rights in American History,” next month.
This new course covers our Founders’ understanding of equality, natural rights, and civil rights; the quest for justice up to and through the Civil War, during Reconstruction, and in the 20th century; and the danger posed to civil rights today by identity politics.
So Mr. or MS. _______, how much do you know about this critical subject?
You can test your knowledge today by taking a brief quiz we’ve put together from the course lectures. You can use the link below to take this short (and fun) quiz.
A group of scholars meets this week to discuss the impact of the Mayflower Compact—signed 400 years ago last week, on Nov. 11, 1620—on the American concept of the rule of law.
The Heritage Foundation and the Religious Freedom Institute are co-hosting the second event in a webinar series exploring the major themes in one of America’s neglected founding documents.

Today in America we celebration Labor Day. First celebrated in 1882 and continually since 1894, it is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.
After 8 years of near record high unemployment the nations laborers had much to celebrate in Jan 2020 when for the a full quarter unemployment hovered at 3.5% the lowest in decades.Then COVID-19 and everything changed overnight.
If you watch any political news on either side of the isle all they seem to want to do is play the “Blame Game“. While I believe it is important to point out the differences in POLICY between your positions and your opponents today that does not seem to matter only who has a better more likable personality.
So today 07 September 2020, as we celebrate the 126th Labor Day, let us put aside the Blame Game and concentrate on what really matters Laboring Together to Build A Better America. Is that not what the Founding Founder’s wanted.
(A Song of degrees for Solomon.)
Except the LORD build the house, – Whatever you are building a family, a house, a nation the LORD is the essential ingredient our founding fathers (despite the naysayers) understood this.
they labour in vain that build it: – there have been many “great men” in the world who have taken nothing with them to an eternity of self condemnation in hell.
Further we can choose to Righteously Labor with God or Not. We have all seen the chaos and depravity running amok on many of our cities streets. Is that the building up of America we want to leave for the future?
Sophie Scholl was raised, along with her older brother Hans, in a nominal Lutheran household. Like most German children at the time, she was a member of the League of German Girls and her brother a member of the Hitler Youth. However, as they grew up, they became more and more disillusioned by the Nazification of virtually every area of German life and Hitler’s tyrannical opposition to much they believed to be good, such as works of art and music considered to be non-Aryan…
