Don't Know Much About History
Who really discovered America? What was "the shot heard 'round the world"? Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings: Did he or didn't he?
From the arrival of Columbus through the bizarre election of 2000 and beyond, Davis carries readers on a rollicking ride through more than 500 years of American history. In this updated edition of the classic anti-textbook, he debunks, recounts, and serves up the real story behind the myths and fallacies of American history.

This book is a great supplement to any dry old textbook! The stories and topics are great and touch on events that are sometimes skipped or barely touched upon by most textbooks. I have a history degree and learned new stuff! I heartily recommend for history classes and teachers. Read full review
It's not the compulsive read that the author was hoping for, I think, but it's definitely interesting. Anyone writing a review claiming that Davis was making up facts should really give examples. At no point did I find something historically inaccurate. It's the reviewer's biases, not the author's that are showing.
