I’m not offering these historical anecdotes to defame the history of the country. I’m not calling for Jefferson’s statue to be removed along with the Confederate memorials. I do, however, think it is essential that we recognize that the white nationalist history embedded in American culture lends itself to white nationalist rallies like the one in Charlottesville.

I bought this book 25 years ago at the Smithsonian American History Museum. I still have it and have read it countless times through. It has short facts that I never knew anything about. It's not like some books who just repeat information heard many times before. It's one of the best books I ever bought and will keep forever.
