7 Events That Made America America
All students of American history know the big events that dramatically shaped our country. The Civil War, Pearl Harbor, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and 9/11 are just a few. But there are other, less famous events that had an equally profound impact.
Notable conservative historian Larry Schweikart takes an in-depth look at seven of these transformative moments and provides an analysis of how each of them spurred a trend that either confirmed or departed from the vision our Founding Fathers had for America.
For instance, he shows how Martin Van Buren’s creation of a national political party made it possible for Obama to get elected almost two centuries later and how Dwight Eisenhower’s heart attack led to a war on red meat, during which the government took control over Americans’ diets. In his easy-to-read yet informative style, Schweikart will not only educate but also surprise readers into reevaluating our history.
More about Larry Schweikart
Larry Schweikart was born in Arizona, went to Arizona State University, got terrible
grades, and upon graduation promptly went on the road as a drummer in a rock band.
His group became semi-famous, opening for “Steppenwolf,” the “James Gang,” and “Mother’s Finest,” and drew the attention of Billboard Magazine. After a few years, however, Schweikart tired of the road and wanted a more intellectual pursuit. After a single U.S. history course during a stint in summer school, he decided he wanted to be a professor.
Graduating from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1984, Schweikart had already written two books and several academic articles as a graduate student. After a year in the University of Wisconsin system, he took a position at the University of Dayton, where he teaches to the present.
Over the years, Schweikart has written nearly 30 books, dozens of articles and book reviews, and became an authority in antebellum banking and finance. In the 1990s, he wrote his own history of American business, The Entrepreneurial Adventure, then, with
Michael Allen, began work on a larger project, a history of the United States.
Published in 2004 as A Patriot’s History of the United States, this book became a bestseller and attracted the attention of the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and talk-show host Rush Limbaugh, who interviewed Schweikart for his newsletter in March 2004. Now in multiple editions and a fourth printing, Patriot’s History continues to be “the” alternative history for parents disgusted with the dominant liberal-left textbooks.
In 2006, Schweikart followed up with the controversial Americaís Victories: Why the U.S. Wins Wars. Featured on BOOK TV and numerous television and radio shows, Schweikart was invited by the President of the United States to the Oval Office for an extended discussion of military history in August 2006.
Now, with his new book, 48 Liberal Lies About American History (That You Probably Learned in School) Schweikart is back in the culture wars. He has appeared on the “700 Club”, “Fox and Friends”, Fox News, Book TV, and dozens of national and local radio shows, including Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, Hugh Hewitt, and many others. A novelist who has written a 9/11 thriller, September Day, and a World War II counterfactual military drama, Halsey’s Bluff, Schweikart brings history to life in a variety of venues.
