David is also an author of numerous best-selling works and a national award-winning historian who brings a fresh and accurate perspective to history.
"David Barton has done his homework. How refreshing to learn the facts that are sadly omitted in today's public schools. All our kids should learn this to fully appreciate the heritage of this great county and what was in the hearts of our nation's founders. Learn what you should have been taught and gain a new pride and love of our country and why these truths must be taught, lest we forget and become unrecognizable as America. If you have SkyAngel TV, you can watch these shows on The Golden Eagle Channel. "

"I only wish that these wonderful DVDs could be shown in our public school system. The very fact that they cannot because of "political correctness," illustrates how far we have strayed from the path that our fore-father's laid out in the constitution."

The Dove Foundation Review:
Constitution Alive is a wonderful four-DVD set that brings the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and a world of information to life. Each DVD focuses on a different aspect of the Constitution, on which Barton and Green elaborate. Watching this video series is just like taking a course on these important topics.
This series is very educational and well presented. Teachers could utilize it as a classroom tool or an entire course on the Constitution of the United States.
Every American should watch this series.
