New Book: The Citizen's Almanac

citizen'salmanac.jpgAs a Federal Depository Library, we receive many resources for new citizens. One book we've recently received is The Citizen's Almanac, which is presented to those who become U.S. citizens.

In it, you'll find summaries of key historic documents, quotes from U.S. Presidents about citizenship, and descriptions of famous U.S. Supreme Court decisions. One interesting section is about the history of patriotic anthems and symbols. The Pledge of Allegiance, for instance, was first recited by schoolchildren on October 12, 1892.

An earlier edition is available online. Or, visit the law library or a Federal Depository Library to read it in person.
