This summer, I attended the Hillsdale Hostel at Hillsdale College in Michigan. I took a seminar entitled What is America. We had lectures from awesome Hillsdale professors, including Gary Wolfram and Burt Folsom. I learned from Dr. Folsom that the US History textbooks I used in high school in Seattle (way back in the 1960’s), were teaching LIES about the Great Depression tax policies of Andrew Mellon. This made me very angry, but there’s not much you can do, 40 years down the road.
