People all over the United States celebrate our country’s “birthday” each year on the Fourth of July. This national holiday is called Independence Day because it commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on July 4, 1776. The declaration informed the world that the colonies, fighting against the tyranny of Great Britain, had officially proclaimed themselves to be “free and independent states.”
The Founding Fathers were brave patriots who vigorously supported—and defended—their newly declared country. After the American Revolution, patriotism was so popular that people even gave their children patriotic names such as Independence, Liberty, and America. Now more than ever, the future of liberty depends on raising young patriots to reclaim America’s founding principles.
Rush Limbaugh, host of The Rush Limbaugh Show, has produced an entertaining series of historical fiction books that introduce readers to the early days of our independent nation. The Adventures of Rush Revere books include: Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, Rush Revere and the First Patriots, Rush Revere and the American Revolution, Rush Revere and the Star-Spangled Banner, and Rush Revere and the Presidency.
Freedom is a natural outcome of a proper education. That’s why Rush and Kathryn Limbaugh and everyone at the Adventures of Rush Revere Series are proud to support the homeschool mission nationwide. They say: “You are a very special group of patriots dedicated to providing the best education possible for the younger generations. Thank you for your wonderful work!”
Rush Revere Homeschool also offers an annual scholarship. Congratulations to Hunter, homeschooling teen winner of the Spring 2017 Rush Revere Homeschool Scholarship!
Hunter’s parents decided on homeschooling him because they felt it was important to enjoy reading and building relationships with the people surrounding him. His father says that he is polite and respectful with small children and adults, and takes care of his Grandma and Papa.
Hunter excels academically and made a perfect score on state testing in English/ Language Arts. He has been involved in sports, music, and extracurricular field trips. Hunter’s parents take him on their travels around the world.
Hunter has played the piano for eight years. At age eleven, he was the youngest member of his local barbershop chorus. Hunter participates in youth ministry and mans the tech booth at church. He also works with a golf charity.
And of course, Hunter loves history and the Rush Revere series!
