Description

This pro-Americana booklet has been primarily designed for naturalized citizens as they enter into citizenship life within the United States of America.  The Citizen’s Almanac contains information on the history, people, and events that have brought us where we are today as a beacon of hope and freedom to the world. The contents of this booklet will serve as a constant reminder of the important rights and responsibilities immigrants will now have as a U.S. citizen. By continuing to learn about their new country, its founding ideals, achievements, and history, citizens will enjoy the fruits of responsible citizenship for years to come. Through their efforts, the freedom and liberty of future generations will be preserved and ensured.

The Citizen’s Almanac is a collection of America’s most cherished symbols of freedom and liberty, serving as a modern day lifeline to the rich civic history we all share as Americans. The booklet includes information on patriotic anthems and symbols, citizenship rights and responsibilities, the creation of our founding documents, biographical details on prominent foreign-born Americans, landmark decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court, and important presidential and historic speeches on citizenship.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is the government agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States.

This resource is primarily targeted at immigrants hoping to become U.S. citizens. However, it can also serve as a patriotic resource for elementary school-aged children to freshmen in high school. Teachers of social studies and civics programs may want to have a copy handy to use in classrooms. It is highly recommended that this resource should be available to students in K12 school libraries within the United States of America.
