The Reasons for All the USA s Annual Federal Holidays Book PDF/Epub Download
This book is the result of Dr. Alan Bruce (A. Bruce) Clark’s decades of study, and it discusses the impact of the world’s major events upon the Annual, Federal Holidays of the United States of America, which start with New Year’s Day and end with Christmas Day. Dr. Clark wrote corporate histories for Historic Houston, a book that President George H. W. Bush also helped write and Dr. Clark, for several years, wrote the monthly feature articles in the E. W. Forbes Report, which received written praise from many world-renown leaders, including Dr. Denton Cooley who performed the first heart transplant in the USA. He wrote these articles before the death of Elroy Forbes, a Vietnam War veteran exposed to Agent Orange and honored by multiple Houston mayors with an "E. W. Forbes Day." In a strict sense, there are no national holidays when every person living in the United States is not working. However, there are eleven holidays that the Federal Government of the USA declared as annual celebrations. Five of these holidays occur on specific dates, provided the calendar days do not occur on weekends, while the dates for the other six holidays vary from year to year. This book is the result of Professor Clark’s providing handouts to his students about each Annual Federal Holiday, and their encouraging Alan Bruce Clark, PhD to compile the articles into an easy-to-read, interesting book. Dr. Clark wrote this book to show the terrific contributions made to America by those of different racial heritages, genders and creeds. As for Dr. Clark's ancestry it includes those who came to the United States on the Mayflower and his predecessors are buried in Hickory Grove Cemetery in Waverly, Pennsylvania along with the Underground Railroad African-Americans they supported. Thus, this work incorporated insights provided by African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans and Native-Americans. As noted, even the New Year's celebration, which did not originally occur on January 1, has elements of the world's major ethnic groups. History buffs, patriotic Americans, teachers wanting a unique required textbook for their students, librarians, active military personnel, veterans, children, teenagers, young adults, retirees, seniors, citizens, residents, business leaders, community leaders, political leaders, unions and even those who do business with American companies and/or are contemplating a visit or moving to the "land of opportunity" will greatly benefit from this book. This is due to its providing details on the history and customs behind the New Year's Day, Birthday of Martin Luther, King, Jr., Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Juneteenth National Independence Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day Celebrations. This book even has events planned through 2025 and is dedicated to all Americans past, present and future. It is because of their devotion, determination and hard work that the United States became a great nation and that it can become even better. Each annual holiday has its own rich heritage, which all Americans, regardless of their personal beliefs, can appreciate and respect. The reason is that the sacrifices of others made the USA great. More importantly, the United States can become even better with your dedication and commitment. Having said these things, it is hoped that you will enjoy this trip through the Annual Federal Holidays of the United States of America! Businesspersons can give this book to clients, employees and schools. Likewise, government officials can present this book to military personnel and other public servants to let them know that their efforts are deeply appreciated, while teachers can order this book for their history, American culture and U.S. citizenship courses. Dr. Clark thanks you for your interest in this book and hopes that it will bless you in a very special way.
