Abstract:     
This paper looks at the historical development of the concept of home in the United States. Though the lenses of race and religion, citizens have created a history to defend a conception of home which rarely ever existed. In the actions of individuals, and in the actions of institutions, the political development of the United States can be seen as a fight to save home.
