The Century of Change

The Century of Change is the story of Americans who combined their native skills with the growing torrent of new knowledge to improve the quality of life for themselves and their children. Like the sewing machine, countless other inventions and techniques appeared to help this determination become a reality. The story is not a routine report of smooth progress toward the perfection of life. There have been hardships, yes – even injustice among Americans. The balance between laws and social progress is the critical element in George Washington’s Great Experiment. It is the people – each new generation of Americans – who must improve and maintain this balance within their constitution.
