We are lucky to live in the greatest nation on Earth— the United States of America. Land of the free, home of the brave. The world is a complicated place today; look around, and you know there is no other country in which you’d rather live. Our freedom means everything to us. It was over 230 years ago that our forefathers dreamed of a country where citizens could be truly free, in the way that we are today. They fought for this new way of life, a new future, and a better government. They fought to realize the dream of the United States of America— freedom and liberty for all of us.
As Americans, we believe in our future— it’s the knowledge that our lives are, on the whole, better than our parents’ lives, the hope that our children’s lives will be better than our lives, and that their children’s lives will be even better than theirs. Almost no other country boasts this kind of faith in the future. Deep down, we know that this is because of the liberties we share— this is what makes America the greatest nation on Earth. Our freedoms ensure us not only our rights as American citizens, but our equality as human beings. These freedoms allow us to believe that our future will be as bright as our past.
Our forefathers laid the groundwork for freedom with the Declaration of Independence in 1776. After securing victory in the Revolutionary War, America’s leaders—our champions of liberty— such as Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and George Washington, spoke about, and drafted the essential documents outlining our new nation’s freedoms: the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. At the heart of these inspired documents, the Founding Fathers laid out their vision for the country: liberty and justice for all.
The Champions of Liberty Tribute Pistol, issued on a working Colt® Government Model® .45 pistol. This Tribute is handsomely decorated in 24-karat gold and nickel by craftsmen commissioned specifically for this project with symbolic artwork honoring our forefathers and the beliefs they lived and died for, the beliefs that still stand today.
Craftsmen chosen specifically for this project by America Remembers polish and decorate each Champions of Liberty Tribute Pistol in sparkling 24-karat gold and nickel artwork with blackened patinaed highlights against an overall gold decorated pistol to create a stunning effect. In every phase of its conception, design and execution, and in every detail of its finish, we have held fast to the goal of creating a proper and long-lasting Tribute to celebrate the symbols of America’s freedom.
In the 18th century, when it came to firearms, the Founding Fathers were like most men of the time who owned guns as protection for family and property, for hunting or as their primary weapon for militia duty. Almost all of them had seen combat during the Revolutionary War and many were regular hunters. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and George Mason were avid gun collectors. James Madison was an amateur marksman who reportedly boasted that he could hit a small target at 100 yards. I feel certain that our Founding Fathers would appreciate this firearm which honors them, and the freedoms they fought so hard for. They were the first champions of liberty. We continue that legacy.
A Fitting Tribute For The Champions of Liberty
As Americans, we treasure the patriotic symbols of our nation because they represent our hard fought steps along the road to liberty and democracy. They remind us of the men and women who sacrificed their lives so we could continue to live in freedom, and all those who have served and continue to serve our country, upholding the values we hold dear. To us, these icons and landmarks are more than mere symbols, they are the embodiment of the American spirit and what makes this nation truly great.
