Politcal Correctness, within the schools, has bashed history in America.
Has "bashed history in America"? Oh, please explain this one...

I loved "Lies My Teacher Told Me." I thought it was an excellent analysis on the problems of history in schools.

So the people on that list, other than Marilyn and Oprah, had no role in shaping American history and are there strictly due to political correctness? I don't think teachers should be endorsing such an idea, sorry.

I am surprised that Elenor Roosevelt is not on there. Clara Barton would have made the list before Amelia in my book. Abilgail Adams??????? Helen Keller?


what about Molly Pitcher!?!?!



that's my favorite rest stop on the New Jersey Turnpike.

I have stayed at the Molly Pitcher inn.

I would put Deborah Samson on the list ahead of Molly. But Deborah was known to, shall we say, embellish.

:O)
