The American Land: An Announcement

PrintPrintEmailEmail

We believe the American people have the will and the wherewithal to shape the pattern of their environment and to make of this land whatever they wish. We also believe that an understanding of what has gone before, the mistakes made, the experience gained, will be important in that process. And we think that as historians concerned for our total heritage we should raise a standard to which men of good will may repair.
