Hloom also include;;,; vri the hook George Washington's farewell address. and President J rcc'r. 1823 nu-ssa^e to c-::ubiishi:v.4 the Monroe Doetrinv prohibiting Eurojjean incursions into the Western Hemisphere. One chapter contains a hitherto unrevealed story of how the commission. with the help of handwriting experts and by searching for two years through historic documents in Philadelphia, discovered who engrossed the final copy * of the Constitution, it was finally established that the man was Jacob Shallus, an assistant clerk ui the Pennsylvania general assembly. He received $30 for his work. Designed as Factual Kecord The book. Bloom emphasized, is strictly a factual record, based on authentic historical documents. It traces -he" origins of the United States, the formation of the constitution, the ratification by states, the organization of Congres. election of George Washington, formation of the Bill of Rights and its ratification. • Cne section includes a cross- index of the contents of the constitution, prepared after more than two years of study, with citations showing all implied or corollary powers contained in the document. Still other sections contain addresses delivered in memorial services at Washington's tomo at- Mount Vernon. and complete proceedings at the 150th anniversary proceedings in Congress and the Supreme Court. These included addresses by President Roosevelt, Chief Justice Charles ' r ' Evans Hiuhs. congressional leaders, and other high government officials. "The book was prepared," B'oom said, "with the most painstaking care and research. It is one place where students can find the undisputed historical facts. Speaks for America "It was our idea to snow exactly how the union was formed under the Constitution. When an Anur- irnan knows this, one used not worry about his being proud of his government, nor that he will embrace .subversive ideologies. "We believe it is important to have 'somewhere together nil the great liberty documents of the world. For this reason we put them in here—the Magna Carta, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration o? Independence. the Constitution. Because Washington's farewell address and the Monroe Doctrine are cornerstones of American policv. everyone should know fully their elements, and for that reason We put them in also." Besides historical material on the ' founding of the union, the book includes a section on the visi: of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth to the United State.;. In another section, which Bloom said was prepared spscifically for children, 30 of the best cartoons published on the 150'ih anniversary of the Constitution were included. "The Constitution stands as the foundation on w^.ich later generations have built the present structure of our government." President F.o3;evelt said in a letter to Bloom, printed as the foreword of the bok. The book is sold onl the U.
