Publisher's Summary

Here are the two most treasured documents of American freedom together on one audiobook.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal....

Drafted by Thomas Jefferson in 1776 as an act of rebellion, the Declaration of Independence powerfully expresses the political principles of an emerging nation. As justification for severing ties with England, The Declaration presented a list of grievances against the king and declared the colonies to be sovereign states.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Ratified in 1788, the Constitution for the United States of America remains a shining example of patriotism and compromise. In outlining the power of the three branches of government and establishing the rights of all Americans, the Constitution united the 13 independent states and set forth the official viewpoint of a newly unified nation. Its most significant and insightful feature is that it can always be amended.

Excellent Resource

Great way to "read" the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. Something to refer to often to learn and keep fresh in mind the construct of our government and our rights that our government should be protecting.

Well read. Amendments 11-27 not included.

Would have preferred all amendments be included. Otherwise, very well read. One of the most relevant documents in world history.

Don’t panic!

Reads like Vogon poetry and it’s wonderful because of it! An architectural dream of perfection and play.

Read very clearly and concisely.

Understood every word and it all made sense. I was led to believe in school that it was written in Old English and was hard to understand. That was not the case.
