I don't recommend this book, and if this book were required to enroll in a Virginia History class then I would not recommend that class.
My youngest was in 3rd grade when the school held a play on U S History. They made 2 white kids use black face, had a Lincoln and they stated on stage: "We are sooo grateful for the Civil War that gave us slaves FREEDOM!"
I was shocked! I stood in the auditorium and stopped the play. I stated the Civil War was over STATES RIGHTS and slavery only became an issue in 1864 when Lincoln was being re-elected. The princial stated that the history book did NOT state that fact. I ask to see the book. It was PRINTED IN CANADA and already edited and that was in 1990!
I am a DAR and I have gone to many schools now to preach on EVERY STATE teaching CORRECT STATE History. Va History is one of the best and this book is one of the best! It's informative, easy to read and has history that school books don't have anymore. Sad, our kids do NOT know correct history of their states or this country.
For those wanting CORRECT Virginia history, this is a good one! GET INVOLVED PARENTS and make sure your child knows THEIR STATES HISTORY!
