Legacy of Honor free pdf Each year roughly 50,000 young men join the ranks of one of America's most honored groups: the Eagle Scouts. Alvin Townley set off across the nation to hear the stories of Eagles from all walks of life, including civil rights leaders, soldiers, politicians, businessmen, and conservationists who began their life's journey in Scouting and went on to play a key role in American history.
