This book should be required reading in every US history class. In fact, it should be required reading for every American. These unsung Patriots are not only a testament to the unparalleled bravery, spirit, and moral fortitude that this country was built upon but also a reminder of the potential for greatness that resides in the heart of every one of us. (Mark Levin Nationally syndicated radio host)|Rick Santorum’s American Patriots
is a beautifully written, inspiring look at the forgotten heroes whose unparalleled bravery laid the foundation for our country. It’s hard to read this book and not be reminded that the ‘shining city’ still resides within each one of us.

is the Profiles in Courage
for a new generation. Bravo to Rick Santorum for shining a much- deserved spotlight on these unsung heroes of the Revolutionary era. (Laura Ingraham, Nationally syndicated radio host)
From the Inside Flap
It’s Time to Answer the Call
The United States of America was founded by ordinary citizens who willingly sacrificed their lives and fortunes in order to hand down the precious legacy of freedom we enjoy today.
In American Patriots
, Rick Santorum shares the true-life accounts of twenty-five unsung heroic men and women from the Revolutionary War era. These citizen Patriots fought valiantly and made significant sacrifices to secure our God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness―not only for themselves, but also for countless future generations.
Their stories provide stirring reminders of the extraordinary faith, courage, and determination that set this country on the path to greatness centuries ago, as well as continued inspiration for generations of American patriots to come.
