More Revisionist History

Conservatives have long been concerned about the rewriting of American history.  That concern is still well founded as we head into another school year when school districts begin to use newly purchased curriculum which build on the distortions previously told.  Of immediate concern is the revisions to AP History, taught to advanced high school students, which eliminates study of the Pilgrims, de Tocqueville, Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Lincoln among others.  How can one rightly learn U.S. History without including these and other formative people and events?  One simply cannot.
