On This Date : From the Pilgrims to Today, Discovering America One Day at a Time Hardback

Hardback

Description

From the Boston Tea Party through the 2016 election, ON THIS DATE takes readers through five hundred years of American history, one day at a time.

Drawing from Carl Cannon's popular RealClearPolitics Morning Note, ON THIS DATE is formatted around fascinating-and sometimes unknown-stories behind specific dates in US history.

Stories like how Eisenhower spent the night before D-Day, why Lincoln lost the Lincoln Douglas debates, and where Baby Ruth candy bars get their name.

In the spirit of Kenneth Davis's Don't Know Much About History and the History Channel's 10 Days that Unexpectedly Changed America, ON THIS DATE offers a colorful alternative history that debunks some popular myths and celebrates America's forgotten heroes.
