Stupid American History : Tales of Stupidity, Strangeness, and Mythconceptions
From Columbus to George W. Bush, Leland leads us through American history's mythconceptions, exposing idiocy and inanity along the time line. He reeducates by informing us about myths. For example, Samuel Prescott actually was the guy to alert the US soldiers that the British were coming and not that Paul Revere dude. Move over Colbert and Stewart; satire has finally found its rightful place in American history.
