I also believe that in order to appreciate where you are, you must trace the path that got you there.
That is exactly what this book does. The 1947 Freedom Train is not only the story
of the foundation of our freedom, it is the base piece for patriotism.
We cannot take our freedoms and those who sacrificed to secure those freedoms for granted.
This wonderful book fills that gap and provides information
on the path that our forefathers followed to secure them for us.
It is especially important that young Americans who are growing up in the troubled world in which we live
understand that freedom is not free,
we have to sacrifice to maintain our liberties.
This book should be required reading in schools across our nation.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!”
Lieutenant General Cavezza, a 3-Star General, was inducted into the
Georgia Military Veteran’s Hall of Fame Class of 2016.
He has earned numerous combat awards:
Combat Infantryman Badge, Air Medal (Valor), Purple Heart, Bronze Star Medal (Valor),
Distinguished Flying Cross, and the Silver Star (2).
About the Book
This is a fictional story about a historical event that will help remind children of the important documents that protect the freedom of Americans. The real-life 1947 Freedom Train carried the nation’s vital historical documents around the country to show them to Americans of all ages. The Freedom Train’s journey helped viewers see the laws that have worked to protect freedom for all Americans since the founding of the country. Learning about the 1947 Freedom Train will also help today’s children see the importance of honoring the men and women who have secured the country’s freedoms, allowing its citizens to continue to live at peace.
Children will be inspired and motivated to impact the world themselves. As Grandpa Charles says in telling Justin, Libby, Jaden, and Sonia about the 1947 Freedom Train, “New beginnings all start from caring ideas.”
