David | 1 comments Under the book New American History by Eric Foner, there are two quotes listed. Both are lengthy, and both are NOT from the text or any other Foner text. They are made up, and one of them is racist. Can someone who knows how please remove them? I don't know who put them there, but they have no business being on Eric Foner's page.

Thank you.

Searching inside the book definitely fails to find key words from either, nor is their tone at all like that of the book (or author) in question. Can't find any legitimate source for them either.

Gone.
