What a fun and interesting read. Each chapter is about a different historic event and details that event. These different events in American History are ones that many people do not usually think about or remember. They were fascinating to read and learn more about and I thoroughly enjoyed reading them. I would recommend this book to readers that enjoy reading about history.
