Kenneth C. Davis presents a collection of extraordinary stories, each detailing an overlooked episode that shaped the nation's destiny and character. Davis's dramatic narratives set the record straight, busting myths and bringing to light little-known but fascinating facts from a time when the nation's fate hung in the balance.
Spanning a period from the Spanish arrival in America to George Washington's inauguration in 1789, AMERICA'S 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, AMERICA'S HIDDEN HISTORY proves why Davis is truly America's teacher.
