Why Do We Publish American Essence?

America was built on founding principles encompassing religious freedom and tolerance. Successive waves of peoples have since thrived on our shores. Furthermore, our country derives its strength from its God-bestowed blessings. A fresco painted inside the U.S. Capitol dome reveals a fascinating scene, where the painter has artfully allegorized six areas in which we have led the world: freedom, science, maritime trade, commerce, mechanics, and agriculture. America’s bold, innovative leadership has forged a nation unlike any other in history.

Why do we publish American Essence? To remind us to be proud of our country’s legacy—one that continues to ripple around the world.
