Forgotten Heroes: Inspiring American Portraits From Our Leading Historians
(The Free Press, 1998)
Every culture needs heroes who lead by example and uplift us all in the process. Yet as this collection vividly demonstrates, heroes come in many shapes and sizes, and we all gain when we remember and celebrate them. In Forgotten Heroes, edited by Susan Ware and with an introduction by David McCullough, thirty-five historians and writers, all members of the prestigious Society for American History, recount their favorite stories of underappreciated American figures.
