Publisher's Summary

A conservative historian defends America’s past by debunking four dozen common liberal myths
In this follow-up to the best-selling A Patriot’s History of the United States, Professor Larry Schweikart once again challenges liberal historians and their shameful attempts to distort our country’s legacy. This time he takes on authors of popular textbooks who, in an effort to be politically correct, tarnish America’s image in the eyes of our high school and college students.
The problem isn’t that liberal authors present their opinions or interpretations of history from an obvious left-wing bias. The problem is authors who actually distort facts and manipulate data in an effort to appear objective and unbiased while furthering their leftist objectives.
Students learn, for example, that the Founding Fathers were elitists who drafted the Constitution in order to protect their own economic interests; that Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation only because he needed black soldiers; That racist groups such as the KKK represented our society in the early twentieth century; that the failures of capitalism caused the Great Depression. All false, as readers will discover.

amazingly accurate...

I have done personal study using source material written at the time of some of these lies, and have lived through many of them, but thanks to common core, the liberally biased media the department of education, and the teachers union's Brent toward socialism/communism the truth can only be told one child at a time by parents who take it upon themselves to educate their children.

Historically astute

This book is essential in order to bypass all the leftist myths regarding American history. It highlights how far most college textbooks go to rewrite the shining city on a hill. Must read.
