      The society of the United States is based on Western culture, and has been developing since long before the United States became a country with its own unique social and cultural characteristics such as dialect, music, arts, social habits, cuisine, folklore, the United States of America is an ethnically and racially diverse country as a result of large-scale immigration from many. The Story of Civilization Volume IV: The History of the United States: One Nation under God is a Catholic homeschool history text that seeks to instill children with an understanding of the Catholic Church's history and of the civilizations and societies shaped by Catholic culture. Written in a narrative, conversational, story-teller's style with black and white illustrations interspersed Format: Ebook.

      If the development of an American civilization means anything, it means that the muddle of oil interests and idealism, religiosity and republicanism, civility and violence, out of which United States grand strategy has customarily been distilled, is symptomatic not simply of supremacy but of a national character that can best be understood. The Story of Civilization emphasizes presenting world history as a thrilling and compelling narrative. Within each chapter, children will encounter short stories that place them directly in the shoes of historical figures, as they live through legendary battles and invasions, philosophical debates, the discovery of new inventions and sciences, and the exploration of the world.
