Restoring American History
History textbooks are unique from other educational textbooks because history, for the most part, does not need to be re-written, especially by those individuals 200–400 years removed from the actual events. This applies greatly to American history. It is always better to let the actual participants of the era tell us what they have to say, as opposed to some secular educator 200–400 years in the future, interpreting and rewriting what our founding fathers “really meant.” As if they have some special understanding and insight about the founding of America that the founders themselves did not.
Ideally, in order to capture a true first-hand narrative of history, one would simply need to add more pages to the history textbook as events unfold. For example, a history textbook from the 1930s would simply need additional pages added as World War II unfolded. This process could be continued up to the present day.
However, for the sake of brevity, textbook editors necessarily must minimize the amount of material placed in the American history textbooks, lest the students be overwhelmed by the volume of information. One early America history textbook that I bought, which was written in 1928, stated: (1) “The early chapters of the book have been shortened to make room for fuller treatment of the industrial revolution and recent history.”
Imagine how much history has had to be removed to make room for new, more current information. Herein, then, lies the problem. It’s up to the individuals who edit the books to determine what history stays and what history is left out: what they feel is and was relevant or irrelevant to the founding of the nation.
Since many of those in charge of editing American history textbooks do not see the relevance or the correlation between America’s Christian past and how it affected the founding of the nation, America’s true Christian heritage and its influence on the formation of our Constitutional Republic was one of the first things to be removed. We are left with a generation of Americans who have no idea what our country’s true past looked like. As a result, many of the people I have talked to have little, if any, understanding of the influence that religion had upon the founding of this country and the establishment of its form of government. Gary Palmer, President of the Alabama Policy Institute tells us: “It has been the consistent practice of the totalitarians, the atheists, and the materialists to concentrate on undermining, ridiculing, or eliminating the basic truths of religion. They know that once these go, all the derivative truths and practices that depend on these primary principles become virtually meaningless.”
As Dr. Mike Spaulding once noted, “History is written by the victors. History is rewritten by propagandists. But true history narrates the actual events through the testimony of eyewitnesses.”
Contrary to what secularists in the mainstream media and educational system may have us believe, most of the men responsible for the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were men with firm religious convictions. This is why nearly all first-hand account from the founders themselves have been omitted by present day revisionist textbooks.
There have been many credible studies of the religious and moral influence of our founding fathers by educated and highly credentialed individuals and universities. These studies have been largely ignored by the both the mainstream press and the American court system because it goes against the commonly accepted narrative and as a result return all sovereign power to its rightful place.
“Over a ten-year period, political science professors at the University of Houston analyzed over 15,000 writings and speeches by the founding fathers to determine the primary source of ideas behind the Constitution. The three most quoted sources were the French philosopher Montesquieu, English jurist William Blackstone, and English philosopher John Locke. But the bible was quoted more than any of these: four times more than Montesquieu, six times more often than Locke, and twelve times more than Blackstone. Ninety-four percent of the Founding Father’s quotes were quoted either directly or indirectly, from the bible.”
Historical revisionists have done this country a great injustice by removing our founding fathers’ faith and the influence that it had on their lives and on the founding of our nation from our children’s public school history textbooks.
The Isaiah 3322 Project will present America’s history based on the characters themselves; their writings and the writings of their contemporaries. In this way, true history will be shown to be neither the fanciful dreams of perceived victors in any dispute nor the revisionist dreams of those who seek to obscure the true history of America.
