“I'm 16 years old and I love this course!!! I began Declaration Statesmanship expecting to find a dry, factual book on the American government system. But by the time I'd completed the first chapter I realized that this program would not only give me facts about how our government runs, but show me the principles and great truths that America was founded on. What really made this course "come alive" for me was that it showed me how everything going on in America one hundred years ago can be directly applied to America today. The principles in the Declaration of Independence are the same in every situation and time period. I never knew there was so much to learn about the principles upholding our country!”
