“American History Revised is as informative as it is entertaining and humorous Filled with irony surprises and long hidden secrets the book does than revise American history it reinvents it” James Bamford bestselling author of The Puzzle Palace Body of Secrets and The Shadow Factory  This spirited reexamination of American history delves into our past to expose hundreds ofstartling facts that never made it into the textbooks and highlights how little known peopleand events played surprisingly influential roles in the great American story   We tend to think of history as settled set in stone but American History Revised reve. Written like a textbook with double columns American History Revised is intended to be a supplement to the history your high school textbook ignored or glossed over This is a fine goal because almost every history textbook is a dry tedious tome that bores its readers to sleep before they can learn any history American History Revised approaches this challenge with a scatter gun style of random facts that are very loosely grouped into categories like Forgotten by History In Pursuit of Riches and Simple Mathematics My Dear Watson I can only imagine that those who are not already well acuainted with history would find this jumping back and forth style uite confusing But that is not the reason for my concern I am concerned because there are blatant untruths throughout the text Facts that are not facts Please note that I an reviewing an uncorrected proof and maybe just maybe these items have been addressed in the text I tried to use the peek inside feature to verify but this book does not have it enabled But I can tell you that when one of the reviewers who wrote a blurb in the product description above notes that the book does than revise American history it reinvents it he was not kidding History is reinvented with misinterpretation and misinformation Some examples Note I would normally include the page numbers but publishers don t like reviewers to do that with uncorrected proofs because those page numbers are likely to change He claims that Amerigo Vespucci worked for Columbus when at most there is plenty of evidence that Columbus and Vespucci may have only met at most only a few times But the blurb in the book was about how America got its name and the story is better if the employee steals his boss s thunder He claims that the United States had the world s first census An ironic claim since he laments about our ignorance of history in the preface Perhaps Morris is unaware of the Christmas story and the trip to Bethlehem to be counted in the census In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world Luke 21 Or maybe he was unaware that one of the jobs of the Roman Empire s censor censura was to keep up with the census note the shared root of the words Or maybe he s never heard of William the Conueror s Domesday Book the 1086 census of his conuered territory in England one of the foundational documents of English history and perhaps all of Western history Ancient China and the Incas also kept census records Ancient Egypt may have as well He claims theRead at
