Thank God that as an American History teacher my students will learn this along with the American History lesson that is in their book! We must teach students that this information was not simply left out, but that there was an intentional reason that this information was left out. How systematic it has been to perpetuate a history upon all of us that was favorable for a group of people and so not only unfavorable but damaging for another group.
I am a white person and it makes me mad that we were never taught anything of our black founding fathers. All we have ever heard of is our white founding fathers, and I have notice in my kids schools that they don't even teach them much on any founding fathers any more. I guarantee that if you ask any white person about the black patriots of the American Revolutionary War and they will tell you that their were none, and ask any black person and maybe a handful know of this. Well this text book proves that there were, and it makes you wonder why we weren't taught this in school. This book is a good read and it will surprise you and everyone should read it, if you care anything about our founding fathers. Kind of makes you wonder why the government kept this out of the schools, and how come this text book hasn't been published again since 1855 when it was fist published. Thank goodness for Google for they let you download it for free.
