THE CARTOON HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES
Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
Sometimes satirical, sometimes whimsical, and usually irreverent, this book is a cartoon chronicle of highlights of U.S. history from the first explorations to Star Wars.
Captioned cartoons on every page explain such topics as growing pains experienced by the colonies in 1676 (a Narragansett Indian exclaims, “They grow, we have the pain”), the cotton gin (“a machine, not a beverage”), the rise of big business (“a trust was simply a monopoly going under an Anglo-Saxon name”), and the three powers of 1967: Fire Power (Vietnam), Black Power (“Burn, Baby, Burn”), and Flower Power (hippies).
