Summaries and Reviews
Summary
Presents a collection of little-known or overlooked stories from American history, including an account of the communist invasion of Texas and the story of the men who flew before the Wright brothers.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: History classes reduce America's story into a dry litany of dates, names, and places. That's Not in My American History Book tackles the messy details, reclaims disregarded heroes, and sets the record straight. This book explains why July 4th isn't really Independence Day, reveals 19th century mudslinging that labels Andrew Jackson a "murderer," and even unveils the only vice president with a number-one pop hit. With insight, wit, and irreverence, Ayres uncovers our overlooked past.
