I just finished reading American History Revised, 200 Startling Facts that Never Made it into the Textbooks by Seymour Morris Jr.

I just have to share with you. Fascinating, entertaining, and humorous book! Although he does insert his opinion as fact once or twice, the book is a great read. Great facts such as Lincoln's son was a racists, our missile defense system was invented by a Hollywood sex goddess, and 3 times a private financier saved the US from bankruptcy appear among the 200 facts not in our textbooks (but should). I love history and I have loved reading this book. When sonny tackles American History, this will be on his reading list! I recommend this book for all parents, then you can determine if and when it is appropriate for your child(ren).
