Czech immigrants to the USA brought their ideals and culture, and contributed in many ways to American life, especially by their love of country and freedom. Their culture included the Sokol movement, a philosophy of fitness through gymnastics (a sound mind in a sound body), which stressed discipline, morality, brotherhood, and equality. This is the story of a determined people who sacrificed, endured, and contributed to the American way of life.
