About this item

For the past three decades, many history professors have allowed their biases to distort the way Americas past is taught. These intellectuals have searched for instances of racism, sexism, and bigotry in our history while downplaying the greatness of Americas patriots and the achievements of dead white men.

As a result, more emphasis is placed on Harriet Tubman than on George Washington; more about the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II than about D-Day or Iwo Jima; more on the dangers we faced from Joseph McCarthy than those we faced from Josef Stalin.

A Patriots History of the United States corrects those doctrinaire biases. In this groundbreaking book, Americas discovery, founding, and development are reexamined with an appreciation for the elements of public virtue, personal liberty, and private property that make this nation uniquely successful. This book offers a long-overdue acknowledgment of Americas true and proud history.

This unbiased text of American history should be must reading in every high school. It is factual, well documented , and covers the growth of our country from its inception to current days. It slays many of the mythical dragons that have been preached about the U.S. A real learning experience.
