And so we begin…
What we begin this day, is the culmination of a nearly 20 year-long project by Kettle Moraine Publications, which includes the intellectual battle which led to the formation of the Law of the Land – our Constitution! In addition, we will be publishing those papers and proclamations which came before, including such works as the Mayflower Compact and The Articles of Confederation, some of which have been previously published in our book, AMERICA the Grand Illusion ~ BOOK I: Orphans of the Storm
You’ll note our first posting – The Magna Charta (1215), for this is where our American Revolution began. This entirety of this project will be lengthy and arduous – as there over 700 pages of records to load (to possibly include cross-references between both the Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers alone) – and hopefully our end result will provide one of the most thorough and complete dissertations of these monumental records ever published on-line – with (planned for) links connecting the ‘Point’ and ‘Counterpoint’ views of the participants and authors. We look forward to the insight and continued involvement of Neal Ross, Al Benson, Kim Allsup, Linda Schrock-Taylor and others on this immense project.
And so we come to “Words That Men Lived By,” what we hope to be an important segment of Kettle Moraine Publications – addressing the history of this experiment, which we call ‘America’ – a project, which began in the spring of 2001, and ultimately became one of the most internationally successful series of posts on the first generation Federal Observer web site beginning in October 2001. Herein will be presented the words, letters, speeches and papers from it’s earliest days that made America what she was to become – before the fall.
For teachers and educators – as well as those who just want to expand their historical knowledge – we are proud to bring this project to you… and so we begin…
These are among my goals for what time I have left here on God’s good earth – and to leave my grandchildren – and all the children of the earth – a history of this grand experiment known as America, with both its successes and failures.
Join us now – as we have updated this historical segment and moved it – back it where it began so many years ago … in the pages of the Federal Observer
I’ll see you at Sundown,
