What is Americanism

As stated on The American Legion National Webpage, Americanism is, quite simply, a love of America – loyalty to its ideals and institutions, allegiance to its flag, willingness to defend it against all enemies foreign and domestic, and a desire to pass along the blessings of liberty to future generations.

According to The American Legion’s Americanism Manual, “It is not a word. It is a cause, a way of life – the best way of life ever known.”

One of American Legion Post 111’s primary goals is to teach Americanism to the young Americans in the Conway SC area. As such we promote youth programs such as American Legion baseball, Palmetto Boys State, an annual Oratorical Competition, and the Nathan Wolf Law Cadet Academy.

Americanism is the essential combination of Freedom, Justice, Individual Rights, and Responsibilities that define us and what we stand for. Americanism is also Pride in Country, expressed without reservation, and the duty Legionnaires have in imparting patriotic values to new generations.
