American Classic Series

Review:

This series, which includes The Real Benjamin Franklin, The Real George Washington, and The Real Thomas Jefferson, is a treasure. As the official description reads: “Unfounded myths are now being repeated and embellished in school textbooks and educational television programs.” These books (published by the National Center for Constitutional Studies, a nonprofit educational foundation dedicated to restoring Constitutional principles in the tradition of America’s Founding Fathers) help readers understand the true history and details about these great founders of America. The writing is exemplary and engaging. The books are long and contain much detail, but they are not tedious or difficult to wade through.
