Albert Franklin Blaisdell, Christopher d'James
The Story of American History
(CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform July 20, 2012)
Revisionism and political correctness are the bane of the historian. This reprint of a public domain 1900 elementary school American history textbook represents an unfiltered turn-of-the-century view of our nation's history from Pre-Columbus to the Spanish American War. It's likely closer to a primary source than anything we have today that's been filtered through multiple committees each attempting to advance their own agendas. If at all, Blaisdell is only unintentionally biased and at the very least, his account is an accurate view of a single perspective as opposed to today's texts which purport to be patently objective tellings. Handier than the free PDFs on the web, this you can hold, bookmark, highlight and shelve. An inexpensive imperative for any history buff.
