        Incredible book/ Great for students high school to college
        By Alex M. Tuffile on November 12, 2012

        Any book put out by Hillsdale should be purchased by anyone who wants to learn about the founding. Hillsdale is a college that does not except any federal money. They offer free online classes for anyone interested. I’ve taken Constitution 101/102 can’t recommend them enough. The Hillsdale Constitution reader is another great book. This book is for their Western Civ class. The classes can be found at http://online.hillsdale.edu/home. They are totally free. You don’t have to purchase the books since they post all the readings but the books are great reference material. Parents if you have high school kids who are learning the left leaning history of America in School. Combat it with these classes. They don;t have to take the tests. Just doing the reading will teach them volumes. I am a Political science major at UMASS Amherst and these classes I’ve taken online at Hillsdale are better than anything I’ve taken at Umass and I pay over $25,000 a year to hear aging radicals bash the country I love so much.
