Thats Not in My American History Book collects an illuminating treasury of stories edited out of your textbooks. It explains why the Fourth of July isnt really our Independence Day. It dispels the myth of Paul Reveres ride. It reveals nineteenthcentury political mudslinging that labeled Andrew Jackson a murderer and his wife an adulteress. It even unveils the only vice president ever to compose a numberone pop hit.For generations, history classes reduced the American story into a dry litany of dates, names, and places. Now, Thomas Ayres fills in the gaps, supplying the messy details, reclaiming the overlooked heroes, and correcting the facts you thought you knew. With insight, irreverence, and wit, Thats Not in My American History Book uncovers our unknown past.
