Author Douglas MacKinnon discusses his book "THE 56: Liberty Lessons From Those Who Risked All to Sign The Declaration of Independence." This event took place on May 23, 2022 at The Institute of World Politics. About the book: "THE 56: Liberty Lessons From Those Who Risked All to Sign The Declaration of Independence" by Douglas MacKinnon honors the 56 signers of The Declaration of Independence and details why the genius and vision of these admittedly imperfect men are just as relevant today. This is a book that also serves as a plea not to cancel our shared American history. As the author stresses: “If our history is bad, let us condemn it and learn from it. If it is good, let us praise it and build upon it. But let us never twist, censor, or cancel our shared American history.” Purchase the book here: https://www.amazon.com/56-Liberty-Lessons-Declaration-Independence/dp/1637584245 About the author: Douglas MacKinnon is a former White House and Pentagon official and bestselling author working with other former government officials to establish a Foundation to preserve the history and protect the reputations of our Founding Fathers.
