Study Up For 'Think': American Stories You Haven't Heard

Jul 3, 2013

Who and what slipped past the annals of broadly known American history? We’ll find out at noon with Kenneth C. Davis, author of the Don't Know Much About ... series. He talked to us in 2010 about his book A Nation Rising: Untold Tales of Flawed Founders, Fallen Heroes, and Forgotten Fighters from America’s Hidden History.

Do you know, for instance, who was honored in the first U.S. statue to ever pay homage to a woman? Here's the answer, along with more bits from the book assembled by U.S.A. Today.

Listen to Think from noon to 2 p.m., and again from 8 to 10 p.m., Monday through Thursday on KERA 90.1 FM or stream if you like. Listen to the podcast of this show here.
