How did the conquistadors first stumble across America—and what were the Spanish looking for anyway? What was the Dred Scott Supreme Court case? And while most of us may indeed remember the Alamo, why were we once urged to “Remember the Maine”? In Remember the Alamo, Alison Rattle and Allison Vale serve up American history—its most important events and people, from Plymouth Rock to Pearl Harbor—in concise, one-page capsules that can be read straight through or browsed at will.
Here, in chronological order, is a rollicking tour of American history from Columbus’ arrival through Nixon’s resignation. While America’s reputation for short attention spans may or may not be true, it’s the perfect way to enjoy history in bite-size chunks.
