#26[America's Hidden History], [[Kenneth C. Davis]][return]In a short story non-fiction format, Davis has researched historical events that he claims were either misrepresented, omitted or overlooked when history was written into textbooks. Everyone knows the famous words of Paul Revere and his famous ride through the countryside. But what did he really say? Davis knows and he corrects this part of our misrepresented history in his book, America s Hidden History. [return]He writes of women like Hannah Dustin, who were never included in our history textbooks. Yet she, among many forgotten others, had heroic stories of bravery, courage and determination. When you hear Founding Fathers, there just aren t any women. [return]What was Washington's Confession? Surprisingly, George Washington, was not always the strong, capable leader of an army. Davis tells us about the not so honest leader of our country that occurred during his early career. Was this just a cover-up? Was it a simple overlooked fact? [return][return]The chapters stand on their own and do not require a chronological read, so it is a fun history book to pick up anytime. I loved this book and reading about all the hidden history knowing that sometimes you can t believe everything you read. This book is a must read for all teachers, students of history and anyone who just wants to know the truth. I highly recommend it. {*****}[return][return]Donna Bassett-Edwards
