Sinopsis: Lots of people think that learning U.S. history is a punishment. It's a subject you had to take in school. You memorized a bewildering array of dates, absorbed definitions for terms like Manifest Destiny, and wondered if America really needed two presidents named Harrison. Historical figures were presented to you as if they were characters in a junior high school costume pageant, with their blemishes airbrushed out and personalities drained away in stodgy history textbooks.

History textbooks often overlook the fascinating moments of history. They present U.S. history as something dry and distant, all events and facts, and don't focus on what is really is: The story of Americans. It's the story of people – what they thought, did, and tried to do as they struggled to build a nation.

U.S. History For Dummies is not a textbook. It focuses on people  – famous, infamous, and obscure. This book gives you a basic foundation of information about the history of the United States. Students and teachers can use it as a friendly, easy-to-understand overview of U.S history, and history buffs can use it as a reference to look up important facts, to settle debates, and to store up ammunition for future conversations with a know-it-all brother-in law!

Here's just a sampling of the topics covered in U.S. History For Dummies:

  • Pre-Columbus: The earliest Native Americans
  • The settling of the Pilgrims and the expansion toward the West
  • The American Revolution and the establishment of a new government
  • How the most influential presidents governed the nation
  • The Civil War and the abolishment of slavery
  • The development of modern industry
  • Two World Wars and a Great Depression
  • America matures through tragedy: The Kennedy Assassination, the Vietnam War, and Watergate

U.S. History For Dummies also includes Top Ten lists covering the best  – and worst – presidents, inventions that changed the world, and events that defined American culture.

From the Back Cover: Filled with fascinating trivia and lore not found in textbooks

People, places, and dates with a dash of fun — history will never be the same! Don't know much about history? Don't worry! With this friendly reference, you can bone up on all those facts you missed in history class — and have a good time in the bargain. From the Revolution to the Civil War, from the Great Depression to the Cold War, this is history the way it ought to be — fresh, memorable, and fun.

Discover how to: Astound friends with fun facts about the Founding Fathers Understand terms like "Manifest Destiny" Get a grip on the legacy of slavery Impress your family with Civil War lore Put current events in historical context
