Description
 
Susan Ware (ed); David McCullough (pf). Rescues some of the best little-known or forgotten heroes. Here, 35 of the country’s leading historians recount their favorite stories of underappreciated Americans. From Stephen Jay Gould on deaf baseball player Dummy Hoy; to William Leuchtenburg on the truth behind the legendary Johnny Appleseed; to Christine Stansell on Margaret Anderson, who published James Joyce’s Ulysses. Includes nearly as many women as men, & nearly as many people from before 1900 as after. Heroes encompass not only military figures & politicians, but also educators, religious leaders, & others. Many of these were heroes of conscience, yet they all deserve to be remembered today. Illustrated.
