The Attempt to Steal the Bicentennial--the Peoples Bicentennial Commission: Hearings Before the Subcommittee to Investigate the Administration of the Internal Security Act and Other Internal Security Laws of the Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, Ninety-fourth Congress, Second Session, March 17 and 18, 1976

Etukansi
"It is important that the Congress and the public be aware of the existence of organizations of the revolutionary left, which seek to pervert the legitimate meaning of the American Revolution, and who with the tacit connivance of front organizations, have engaged in a massive campaign to try to 'capture' the Bicentennial celebration for themselves. The subcommittee meets today for the purpose of receiving testimony and evidence from witnesses who have made a study of revolutionary organizations. Through their testimony, today and in subsequent hearings, we plan to peel back the patriotic veneer of the name the Peoples Bicentennial Commission for the purpose of examining and laying before the Congress and the public, facts, by which the legitimacy of this organization's publicly stated goals and objectives and the integrity of their spokesmen may be objectively evaluated"--Pages 1/2.
