This book is on the 2023-2024 Booklist for HS US History Part 1
A TEXTBOOK FOR AMERICAN STUDIES. 750 pages.
By Brent and Kolleen DeGraff.
Providence and Patriots is a compilation of providential events
and the patriotic men and women who have helped
bring about God’s master plan for America. Unlike secular
history books, which eliminate any reference to the miracles that
shaped American history, this textbook reintroduces the divine
interposition of Heaven as it blends original historical sources
and inspired words of LDS apostles and prophets regarding our
nation’s origin and destiny.
“When the real history of the world is written, it will show God’s
dealings with men [and] the place the gospel has played in the
rise and fall of nations…”
—Bruce R. McConkie
This complete perspective covers the
following time periods:
Native American Era
The Mayflower Pilgrims
The French & Indian War
War of 1812
Civil War Era
