5: Don’t know much about history

by Kenneth C Davis

this is my attempt to cram as much of american history as possible into my head..right now

i got a 6 on my HL papers in history in high school so i always thought that i had a pretty good grasp on most things.

If you want to learn about the more important events in American history this is actually pretty well written.

they do offer some revisionist history but it is limited
no historiography what soever because it’d just be too long of a book.

interesting anecdotes and primary sources splashed along the way which makes it for an interesting read…

it only goes up to the year 2002 so anything after that isn’t cover and the copy that i have is the revised, updated and expanded version. maybe there’s an even newer version out now?

anyways…
