After reading (and re-reading) Dr. Fausz's article I began to realize how little history is taught in American primary and secondary schools. The next consideration is this: how much of what is taught is true/accurate Dr. Fausz is prophetical in his view of American imperialism stemming from myth as fact. When Stiles' book was first published (Jesse James) I can recall sitting next to fellow history students and realizing that they were experiencing discomfort and anger. I, on the other hand, was excited at the opportunity of another view of this man. In Missouri Jesse James is a hero to far too many people. So, can the cross be made that Americans may not be able to accept a \"truer\" version of their nation's historyCan it also be logically argued that the myths of America's founding are the basis of national arrogance Imperial arrogance Theological arrogance If we are to begin the road to truth and and purism at what point is this process to begin I can only imagine sixth grade children rushing home to tell their parents that Thomas Jefferson was a scam artist and Andrew Jackson was a homicidal maniac. 1e1e36bf2d
