What Makes America Great by Bob Dowell - a Historical Narrative Validating America’s Exceptionalism

McAllen, TX – September 3, 2019 – America is unquestionably a great country, a fact confirmed by its history as Bob Dowell validates in his succinct narrative entitled “What Makes America Great.” Beginning with reference to the Reformation having birthed America and the Puritans having laid the cornerstone for shaping a God centered commonwealth, the narrative continues chronologically by referencing key leaders and literature for purposes of documenting the exemplary progressive development of America from colony to country to contemporary 2019. Dowell credits John Winthrop’s biblical “city upon a hill” as being America’s exemplary vision, a  vision incorporated in the equality creed of our Declaration of Independence: a creed declaring equality for all because all “are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, [and] that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Dowell makes the case that attempting to convert this exemplary equality creed into reality constitutes the essence of America’s history. Of course, not all attempts have been perfect, for the task has been a difficult one: prime example: a bloody civil war to eradicate slavery was followed by a prolonged civil rights struggle. Yet, despite all obstacles and conflicts, the exemplary has, for the most part, prevailed thanks to great leaders stepping forward at crucial points in our history. “What Makes America Great” references a trove of documents confirming the contributions of these great leaders.  Among leaders referenced and discussed, besides John Winthrop, are Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther King Jr. Among the trove of documents referenced and discussed, besides The Declaration of Independence, are “Model of Christian Charity,” “Of Plymouth Plantation,” “The Mayflower Compact,” “The Way To Wealth,” “The Declaration of Sentiments,” “The Gettysburg Address,” and “I Have A Dream.”

“What Makes America Great” doesn’t attempt to preach America’s greatness; it simply narrates how exemplary events of history have come together in developing an exceptional nation. In the words of the author, “the book was written to counteract the present barrage of partisan railing against America by providing readers a historically documented perspective on our nation’s development.”
