s he departed the Constitutional Convention, Benjamin Franklin was asked if the American Founders had created a monarchy or a republic. "A republic," he famously replied, "if you can keep it."

For our nation to continue to thrive, citizens and statesmen need to constantly renew a civic literacy about the principles of the American Founding, which is why The Founders' Almanac contains information that is vital for our day.

It gives policymakers, political leaders and informed citizens needed information about America's origins, including a calendar of important events, essays on leading statesmen, hundreds of useful quotations by category, key documents, and an annotated bibliography.

The Founders' Almanac is an essential reference tool for anyone interested in conserving the principles of the American Founding and rekindling its spirit in the public life of our nation.
