Man in the Moon is just over a week away, and Glenn is putting the finishing touches on the show. One of the highlights of Independence Week promises to be the history museum that Glenn has curated with the help of historians and collectors around the country. On tonight’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn provided a sneak peek of the museum. From the American Revolution to slavery to World War II and beyond, Glenn has put together a collection of incredible pieces of history.
To start the show, Glenn explained the important distinct that needs to be made between the Fourth of July and Independence Day. Sure, it’s nice to get a day off in the summer and kick back at a BBQ with your family and friends, but it is imperative that we remember the true reason for the day – independence.
Glenn has collected a number of items related to slavery and the freeing of the slaves. From a dog collar slave owners used to restrain their slaves to a desk that belonged to President Abraham Lincoln, it might not be America’s finest moment but it is of the utmost importance that we learn about the past so we can learn from the past.
But what is it that has allowed us to rise from the ashes and overcome our flaws as a nation? The Bible. Glenn called this the “most important stop” on the history tour, and he shared a tremendous collection of historical Bibles from the ‘Vinegar Bible’ to the ‘Napoleon Prayer Book.’
