Description

Kenneth C. Davis presents a collection of extraordinary stories, each detailing an overlooked episode that shaped the nationÂs destiny and character. DavisÂs dramatic narratives set the record straight, busting myths and bringing to light little-known but fascinating facts from a time when the nationÂs fate hung in the balance. Spanning a period from the Spanish arrival in America to George WashingtonÂs inauguration in 1789, AmericaÂs Hidden History explores these episodes, among others: The story of the first real Pilgrims in America, who were wine-making French Huguenots, not dour English Separatists * The coming-of-age story of Queen Isabella, who suggested that Columbus pack the moving mess hall of pigs, which may have spread disease to many Native Americans * The long, bloody relationship between the Puritans and Indians that runs counter to the idyllic scene of the Thanksgiving feast * The little-known story of George Washington as a headstrong young soldier who committed a war crime, signed a confession, and started a war! Full of color, intrigue, and human interest, AmericaÂs Hidden History proves why Davis is truly AmericaÂs teacher.show more
