Summary
From the arrival of the Mayflower through the 2016 election, On This Date explores five hundred 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 U.S. history: How presidents reacted privately to the loss of American astronauts, 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. -- Back cover
Summary
A centuries-long chronicle of American history shares a vignette for each year as drawn from the award-winning author's popular RealClearPolitics Morning Note archives, sharing insights into major and behind-the-scenes events and notables that shaped the nation
