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