Have you ever asked yourself why schools use text books for subjects like history? We, as a nation, have the most well documented history of probably any nation to ever exist. The people who came before us, especially of the founding era, wrote down everything! They documented all decisions and the why’s to go with them. They kept journals, records etc all the time! Text books are so that we can learn someone else’s interpretation, or should I say re-interpretation, of our ever changing history, and we’re just supposed to trust them?
