Revised and updated, this 15th anniversary edition of the #1 New York Times bestseller salutes America's true and proud history. Fifteen years ago, Professors Larry Schweikart and Michael Allen set out to correct the doctrinaire biases that had distorted the way America's past is taught - and they succeeded. A Patriot's History of the United States is the definitive objective history of our country, presented honestly and fairly. Schweikart and Allen don't ignore America's mistakes through the years. Instead, they put them back in the proper perspective, celebrating the strengths of the men and women who cleared the wilderness, abolished slavery, and rid the world of fascism and communism. Now in this revised fifteenth-anniversary edition, a new generation of readers will learn the truth about America's discovery, founding, and advancement, from Columbus's voyage to Trump's promise to Make America Great Again.
