Publisher's Summary

Forget what you were taught in seventh grade - this riveting book takes listeners down American history's back alleys and side streets.

From the arrival of the Mayflower through the 2016 election, On This Date explores 500 years of American history, revealing a compelling tale for each day in the calendar year.

Drawing from Carl M. Cannon's popular RealClearPolitics' "Morning Note", On This Date is focused on fascinating - and sometimes unknown - stories behind specific dates in US history: what inspired Abraham Lincoln to grow his famous beard, what Dwight Eisenhower really thought about playing football against the great Jim Thorpe, the legal grounds for the first American divorce, who wrote "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer" - and who profited from it.

Colorful yet authoritative, On This Date debunks some popular myths and celebrates America's forgotten heroes.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

What the Critics Say

"[On This Date] is rich in forgotten facts about celebrated patriots and unearthed tales of the daring and genius of ordinary Americans. Popular history at its very best, as entertaining as it is instructive, and a moving appreciation of the restless upstarts who carved a nation from the wilderness and made it the most successful enterprise in human history." (Senator John McCain)
