Zinn's book is part of my permanent library and has moved with me over the years. In fact, I have it by my bedside ready to begin reading anew.
Another American mythology that remains to this day is how the Americans saved the Native Americans from their "savage" ways, which is perpetuated in the highly revisionist history textbooks in Texas schools. Another book that occupies a special place in my heart is Francis Jennings' " The Invasion of America: Indians, Colonialism, and the Cant of Conquest" that lays bare the atrocities committed by the military, missionaries, colonists, mercenaries, etc. against Native populations in the Americas (North, Central, South). It took the author more than 10 years to get it published because it dispels so many American myths taught in schools for centuries.
And what Moore said about "Oh, that's history." I witnessed during my Native American studies class (two university semesters), a young white male fraternity president taking the class because it was a GUR, stood up and said, "Why should he be made to pay for the sins of the past?"
And so it goes.
