Were you paying attention in history class?
Calling all history buffs! Are you really as smart as you think you are when it comes to our nation's history? American history, in the realm of history, isn't even actually that long. This country hasn't even been around for 250 years! There are literally universities IN this country that are OLDER than our country. But in that time, the United States has managed to become the most powerful country on the planet, for better or for worse. They say that those who don't know their history are doomed to repeat it, and some days it really feels like we've forgotten where we came from. So it's important, from time to time, to check back in with the figures in our past and ask: What are we doing? Is this right? What did our Founding Fathers REALLY mean when they wrote the Bill of Rights? We'll probably never know the true answer to that, but what we can do is remember all the important things that happened in our past. Do you know why 1776 is an important year in U.S. History? What about 1863? Do you know who Thurgood Marshall is? How about Robert E. Lee?
Lots of Americans don't remember some of these facts - but it's important to think about who, what, when, where and WHY our history is the way it is.
