CACI Supports the Establishment of National American History and Founders Month
Today, we announce that in recognition of the growing importance of American history to maintaining a democratic society, CACI supports the establishment of November as National American History and Founders Month.
As the United States approaches its 250th anniversary in 2026, this commemoration is intended to empower Americans to be active citizens with a greater understanding of our country's foundational origins, and its civics and governance. While other holidays celebrate key events, leaders, and groups responsible for shaping and building the nation, there has been no official recognition or formal commemoration of America's founding history. The selection of November is set apart and distinguished by its inclusion of several important milestone dates, such as Election Day, Veterans Day, and Thanksgiving.
Establishment of an annual National American History and Founders Month will create a tradition of educating and popularizing the early history of our country and its founders. This new commemoration will boost the appreciation and study of American history, the founding history and principles of our country, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the structure of our government, and the unique process by which our government leaders are elected. CACI is pleased to recognize, endorse, and support the observance of this important new annual commemoration.
