The Top Ten Silliest Historical Sites in America... Biography Lies My Teacher Told Me Lies Across America Have James Loewen Speak ... Teachers' Ideas for Teaching
In What Ways Are We Warped...
"When I was a boy on our annual summer vacation trips, the family car seemed to stop at every historic marker and monument. Maybe yours did, too. Dad thought it was "good for us," and I suppose in a way it was. Little did he suspect that it was also bad for us - that the lies we encountered on our trips across the United States subtly distorted our knowledge of the past and warped our view of the world." James Loewen in Lies Across America Below are the "Top Ten Silliest Historical Sites". Be warned, however, I use the word "silliest" in a very reserved sense. On one hand, these sites are indeed silly - they distort and mangle the historical truth. On the other hand, however, they are also harmful and dangerous to those who accept their teachings as fact and truth. You have been warned:

From the dedication of the Maya ballcourt at Chichen Itza in A.D. 864 to modern political activism and government legislation affecting native peoples, here is virtually every significant event in North American Indian history. It also includes fascinating information on hundreds of battles and skirmishes between Indians and whites, as well as countless treaties made and broken.
