What is American Exceptionalism and why is it so important? During his travels in 1831, French writer Alexis de Tocqueville observed that America was an exceptional nation with a special role to play in history. Tocqueville wrote that, unlike Europe, where social standing defined a citizens, America was a new republic where liberty, equality, individualism, and laissez-faire economics defined the "American Creed." A CITY UPON A HILL explores the concept of American Exceptionalism from its origin to the present day.
