Kenneth Davis reveals tales unheard of in America's Hidden History. His revelations are both enlightening and intriguing. Most of us remember what we were taught in History classes, but there are many things in Mr. Davis' book that are not in our school textbooks.
For instance, did you know George Washington signed a confession to a murder and started a war? Or that the French Huguenots were here before the Pilgrims? How about our foremothers, one of which a statue was erected in honor of her escape from Indians after scalping them? Did you know the Pilgrims and Indians did not really get along as well as it is depicted in our Thanksgiving stories?
There are so many things to learn, even if they differ from what we were previously taught. A nation shaped by the things we still see today; greed, fighting, lying...the list is endless.
In my opinion, this book was well worth the read and I wish it was required reading in the educational arena. This is the first book I have read by Mr. Davis, however I intend to read more of his work.
