Before we were even a country, Americans were thinking about liberty, working for it, and fighting for it. It is America’s exceptional idea and the foundation of a free country. But the character of liberty doesn’t exist independently. It was formed out of centuries of crucial institutions, motives, and people. So, how did it come to be? In Give Me Liberty: The Making of American Exceptionalism, author and historian Richard Brookhiser joins constitutional scholar Luke Thompson to delve into the inspiring history of American exceptionalism over four hundred years. He examines thirteen essential documents and recounts their roles in the development of liberty.
