A Patriots History of the United States

A Patriot's History of the United States: From Columbus's Great Discovery to the War on Terror 
by Larry Schweikart  and Michael Allen  ISBN-10: 1595230327 ISBN-13: 978-1595230324 


Book Description: For at least thirty years, high school and college students have been taught to be embarrassed by American history. Required readings have become skewed toward a relentless focus on our country's darkest moments, from slavery to McCarthyism. As a result, many history books devote more space to Harriet Tubman than to Abraham Lincoln; more to My Lai than to the American Revolution; more to the internment of Japanese Americans than to the liberation of Europe in World War II.  Now, finally, there is an antidote to this biased approach to our history. Two veteran history professors have written a sweeping, well-researched book that puts the spotlight back on America's role as a beacon of liberty to the rest of the world.
