“Patriotism consists not in our waving of the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.”
“America without her soldiers would be like God without his angels.”
“America is another name for opportunity.”
“Freedom is one of the deepest and noblest aspirations of the human spirit.”
Riding America. Imagine traveling west through a country that you knew one day would become part of your country. Not by conquering but, by purchasing and then conquering.
On being the first people to ever traverse the country. Our leadership (President Jefferson) made the decision back then to double our country’s size by purchasing it from Russia (Louisiana Purchase) for 20 million dollars. Our united tax dollars at work.
Riding America continued. And how creative and artistic people are. 100 year old trucks stored for posterity.
And how often do you meet a person carving a totem pole?
