Re: Civil War History
Interesting! I have never in 20+ years of teaching history (in 5 states, two of which were northern) seen a history text where the Civil War was left out or where the war was said to be fought to free the slaves. (Protect slavery, yes. Free slaves, no.) College instructors, private schools and home schoolers, incidentally, can normally choose their own texts or choose to teach without a text, depending on reading assignments in various books. All teachers disagree with statements in the text and add more information, or ignore the book, at will. And, I might add, frequently do. Looking at a textbook doesn't necessarily indicate what was said or discussed in class nor the percentage thereof.
