American history is such an amazing subject to study and review! Being a patriotic individual in American society requires some background knowledge into how we got where we are today! Gore Vidal, an American novelist has dedicated his life's work to writing about US history. He once said, "I didn't mean to spend my life writing American history, which should have been taught in the schools, but I saw no alternative but to take it on myself. I could think of a lot of cheerier things I'd rather be doing than analyzing George Washington and Aaron Burr. But it came to pass, that was my job, so I did it." James McGreevey, an American politician, once said, "We need to seek wise leaders who will seek common ground among Americans instead of dividing us further for political gain. As citizens, we must embrace those who embrace ideas, thoughtfulness, civility, and kindness to others no matter what their political beliefs." John F. Kennedy, one of our greatest president, once spoke about geography, history, and economics by saying, "Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners, and necessity has made us allies. Those whom God has so joined together, let no man put asunder." John Henrik Clarke, an intelligent American author, once spoke about history by saying, "History is not everything, but it is a starting point. History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is a compass they use to find themselves on the map of human geography. It tells them where they are but, more importantly, what they must be." It might not be everything, but history is still very important to know about!
