Inspiring American Portraits From Our Leading HistoriansLarge Print - 2000
Historians and biographers regularly come across stories of little-known or forgotten heroes. This book provides a chance for thirty-five of the country's leading historians to recount their favorite stories of underappreciated Americans. Too often lately, historians have been more intent on picking apart the reputations of previously revered Americans, making heroes only of dissidents and doubters. Yet this collection vividly demonstrates that heroes come in many shapes and sizes, and we all gain when we remember and celebrate them.
