“History is yours to make. It is not owned or written by someone else for you to learn. It is being made by you, right now, reading this page, thinking and acting on the ideas you will read about in the pages that follow. It is your rage, your sympathy, your understanding.”

Adapted from an exhibit at the Canadian War Museum, Ottawa, Ontario and reprinted in Jerry Westheimer (ed.). 2007. Pledging Allegiance: The Politics of Patriotism in America’s Public Schools. New York: Teacher’s College Press.
