Book Summary

After the Revolutionary War, Americans removed the symbols of monarchy from their official seals -- crowns were replaced with the bald eagle, mythological supporters became soldiers and minutemen, cannons and crossed swords took the place of ancient heraldic symbols. This book celebrates these American seals and their stories. Saratoga and Herkimer counties, the villages of Horseheads and Fort Edward, the towns of Hoosick and Patterson, and the City of Boston are all included, along with a hundred others from Maine to Georgia.

Self-published in 2011 by MNOBooks, Square Circle Press is proud to offer Celebrating the American Revolution as part of its retail and distribution services on behalf of the author.

Book Reviews

"The American Revolutionary War had an improbable ending for the civilized peoples of Europe as the farmers and woodsman in North America defeated the greatest superior power since the Roman Empire –- Great Britain. That victory gave birth to a Republic with the precept that ordinary humans could live free without a king or queen or aristocracy. Today America still represents the best hope for humanity because this is a nation where humans can rise to their God-given potential. I applaud Marvin Bubie for compiling and editing this masterpiece."
