Don't Know Much About History

Author: Kenneth Davis

Who really discovered America? What was "the shot heard 'round the world"? Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemmings: Did he or didn't he?
From the arrival of Columbus through the bizarre election of 2000 and beyond, Davis carries readers on a rollicking ride through more than 500 years of American history. In this updated edition of the classic anti-textbook, he debunks, recounts, and serves up the real story behind the myths and fallacies of American history – revealing the very human side of history that the textbooks neglect.

In this entertaining presentation, you'll meet the personalities who helped shape our nation and hear the words and wisdom that have endured through the centuries. From the French and Indian War to Vietnam, from George Washington to George Bush, here is the story of how we got to where we are today--and the questions that have plagued most of us since grade school are more interesting than ever before.
