Freedom is an extremely important value to those who call the U.S. their home. They talk about it, teach it to their children, and even go to war over it.
In this module of U.S. Cultural Values and Ideals 101, we will explore what freedom mean to Americans.
Americans value freedom above all else. The idea of freedom is an integral part of the USA's national identity at home and in the world. The promise of freedom is what has brought immigrants from all over the world to the U.S. for the last two centuries. The Statue of Liberty is a symbol of this hope of freedom for all.
