“I am working with my colleagues at the National Association of Scholars on what we call the ‘1620 Project’”

“The New York Times is introducing revisionist history about race in America into classrooms across the nation without the normal peer review expected of educational materials”

"The [1619] project, a collaboration between the New York Times Magazine and the Pulitzer organization, has mushroomed into a movement to re-educate Americans with novel claims about how deeply racism is embedded at America’s core. As of February 2020, five public school systems had adopted the 1619 Project’s curriculum district-wide.

"When you read it, consider the tone, humility, and outlook of President George Washington and ask yourself if any of our current leaders match him. It is, for me, a breath of fresh air, a reminder that while our Founders had many sins, they were at the same time driven to seek the good, the true, and the beautiful." - Intellectual Takeout

What Can We Learn from the Second Thanksgiving?

"Facing potential starvation, the colony abandoned their communal system. Each family was given their own land ....they alone were responsible for feeding themselves, taking to heart Paul’s admonition in 2 Thessalonians 3:10, 'The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” This change brought dramatic results.'" - IFWE

The Place of Christian Religion in the American Founding

"Mark Hall’s new book adduces solid evidence to dispel many contemporary myths concerning religion and the American founding. Let us finally be done with false claims that the founders were deists, or that they were hostile to religion and wanted to exclude it from public life." - Public Discourse
