1-Verdun

When Newt was 16 living in Orleans, France, he visited the site of the battle of Verdun, a World War I battlefield where 300,000 soldiers died.  It was at this moment that he realized that nations can die and be defeated.  This was the start of his lifelong pursuit to ensure the survival of America.

2-Tulane

Newt graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in history from Emory University in 1965 (after taking 1964 off to assist the campaign of Jack Prince, who challenged Democrat Phil Landrum for Georgia’s 9th Congressional District).  Newt later went on to receive a Master’s and Doctorate in Modern European History from Tulane University in 1971.

3-West-Georgia

In 1970, Newt began working as an associate professor of geography and history at West Georgia College in Carrollton, Georgia.

5-Newt-and-Reagan

In the early party of his Congressional career, Newt quickly climbed his way to the upper echelons of Republicans leadership by refusing to accept that Republicans were destined to be the minority in the House.  He quickly began working with President Ronald Reagan to bring about real, positive change in America.

7-Contract

On September 27, 1994, Newt and more than 350 other Congressional candidates signed the Contract with America on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.  The Contract was a pledge to all Americans that the signers would vote for 10 popular reforms if Republicans were elected to the House majority.  It worked. Republicans took control of the House for the first time in 40 years.  It became known as the 1994 Republican Revolution.  They immediately began work passing the reforms.

The success of the Contract with America and the Republican majority earned Newt the honor of serving as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1995 to 1999.  As Speaker, Newt was the chief Republican negotiator with the Bill Clinton Administration, bringing about the first balance budgets in our lifetime and the passage of many bipartisan reforms to welfare and government spending.
