Synopsis

Extraordinary People in Extraordinary Times Stories of Unsung American Heroes by Patrick M. Mendoza

Men, women, and events that have been overlooked in mainstream American history are the focus of this new multicultural collection. Engaging stories inform us about Americans who performed incredible deeds but have been ignored by traditional literature. Dozens of unsung heroes and unusual characters, from the first woman to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor to the black man who broke precedence to fire a gun during the attack on Pearl Harbor, take center stage in this intriguing work. The book also contains little-known facts about well-known personalities. A great supplement for American history classes, this book is fascinating reading for all ages.
