Three critical events in 1913, followed by a corresponding event in 1936, together struck a resounding blow to America’s freedom. In fact, they triggered the greatest turning point away from freedom in modern times.

(Scroll down the page for a chapter outline)

What were these dangerous events? Why do so few American citizens know about them—especially since they dramatically and negatively impact every detail of their lives? Most importantly, how can their effects be reversed and freedom restored?

1913 answers these questions and more. This is not a doomsday book for alarmists, but rather an optimistic action guide for thoughtful, dedicated freedom-lovers. DeMille provides three clear, detailed, and practical solutions you can implement to restore America’s freedom and revitalize her prosperity.

A new turning point of freedom is desperately needed. And reading this book will propel you to the front lines of that shift.


“You’re holding a masterpiece on freedom, and everyone who cares about the future of prosperity and freedom should read and apply this book.”

Orrin Woodward, New York Times Bestselling Co-author of Launching a Leadership Revolution


“At long last, a piercing analysis that goes beyond predictable partisan bickering and gets to the root of America’s turning point. With this book, we can finally stop spinning our wheels in the battle for freedom, get traction, and make a profound difference.”

Stephen Palmer, New York Times Bestselling Writer & Author of Uncommon Sense: A Common Citizen’s Guide to Rebuilding America
