It’s a “free country”! Why? Because in America we’re free to speak our minds, choose our leaders, and set the rules. Since way back when Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, Americans have stood up for freedom again and again—but it wasn’t always easy.

This entertaining, fact-filled book celebrates how, with every generation, more and more Americans won the right to live in freedom. Find out how they did it and why standing up for freedom in the “land of the free” is such a big deal!
