Book Title: That's Not in My American History Book: A Compilation of Little-Known Events and Forgotten Heroes
Publisher: Taylor Trade Publishing
Author: Thomas Ayres
History classes reduce America's story into a dry litany of dates, names, and places. That's Not in My American History Book
tackles the messy details, reclaims disregarded heroes, and sets the record straight. This book explains why July 4th isn't really Independence Day, reveals 19th century mudslinging that labels Andrew Jackson a "murderer," and even unveils the only vice president with a number-one pop hit. With insight, wit, and irreverence, Ayres uncovers our overlooked past.
