Americas Hidden History: Untold Tales of the First Pilgrims, Fighting Women, and Forgotten Founders Who Shaped a Nation by Kenneth C Davis

Kenneth C. Davis, author of the phenomenal New York Times bestseller Dont Know Much About History, 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 details 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 that may have spread disease to many Native Americans The long, bloody relationship between the Pilgrims 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 is an iconoclastic look at Americas past, connecting some of the dots between history and todays headlines, proving why Davis is truly Americas Teacher.
