Description
Serving up 300 intriguing events and ideas that helped shape the United States, this book offers witty and valuable insight into key facets of every period of American history, from colonial days to the election of the first African American president. The authors cover government, politics, economy, commerce, science, education, innovation, medicine, daily life, and arts and entertainment, and the book also includes myth-debunking sidebars, tidbits about lesser-known historical figures, and lists from Deadly Epidemics and Natural Disasters to America's Ten Highest-Grossing Movies.
