In the end, we the going forth, kneeling, made general confession and the priest's hands in the dusk above absolved us. There was solemnity and there was tenderness. A hundred and twenty, we came forth from church, and around us flowed the hundreds of Palos, men and women and children. All was red under a red sunset, the boats waiting to take us out to the Santa Maria, the Pinta and the Nina.

A right wing adaption of history, that blames the Cherokees for revolting after the Trail of Tears, but pardons Jefferson for slavery. Henretta provides a much deeper understanding of American History.

Very nice synopsis of the subject.

It's about and set in the making of America from its roots to now. The characters are the people that have affected the US t

This book is just okay. The illustrations, maps, and timelines are great but the text is only marginally engaging. Keep in mind, too, that history is always shaded by the opinions of the writer. Some writers try to hide it. This one does not.

I thought this book went into interesting details and brought up interesting debate points. Although some parts were quite dry, it gave me some things to think about.
