About
Every schoolchild is taught the great turning points in American history, such as Gettysburg, Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy assassination, and 9/11. But other, equally significant events have altered our destiny without being understood - or even widely noticed.Acclaimed conservative historian Larry Schweikart now takes an in-depth look at seven such episodes and reveals the profound ways they have shaped America. In the same accessible style of his previous bestsellers - A Patriot's History of the United States and 48 Liberal Lies About American History - Professor Schweikart doesn't merely recount our history; he forces us to rethink what makes our country great. He shows how individual liberty, private enterprise, and small government helped build a free and prosperous nation. Conversely, whenever these values have been threatened by big government, oppressive taxes, and special interests, we lose sight of the principles that made us strong.You'll be surprised to learn how these events spurred sweeping changes that still affect us today.
