Dear SGAP Students: On behalf of the Student Governmental Affairs Program (SGAP), I am proud to introduce our updated edition of “America’s Legacy: Foundation of Freedom.” This book includes some of our country’s most important founding documents and speeches, along with the keys to being a good American citizen. “America’s Legacy” was created for students like you in all 50 states. The infographics in this book were originally designed for our partner Discovery Education, for whom SGAP provides civics education content. In creating this book, it is our desire that readers would be better informed about our country’s heritage and the sacrifices made by its founders. We hope you enjoy learning from this book as much as we enjoyed compiling it.
