  • Description

    By Augustus Lynch Mason, John Clark Ridpath, and Trumbull White. Here is an absolutely amazing book, written in 1904 by three American educator-historians, chronicling the heroic deeds and lives of the fathers and mothers of America. This beautiful reproduction has more than 100 B&W illustrations gracing its impressive pages. Much of this book would be considered too politically incorrect to make it into any modern history book today.

    Every single chapter and story in this 694-page book is filled with fact and excitement like you’ll never see in the dry, politically correct histories published in our modern era.

    Here is America’s history as viewed by the people of the early 1900s who were unafraid to celebrate our real heroes and revile the dastardly villains of the early days of our nation, at least a few of which we are sure you have never heard.

    Great for adults, but also perfect for a young person who wants to know what history was like before it was watered down by the Cultural Communists, intent on wiping out just this kind of inspiring cultural chronicle. A real gem of American history.
