When i graduated high school, took my college entrance exam, one of the areas i scored in the top 97% of the country that year, was US history and government.
When i entered University, i was given US history 101 and 102 without taking the class.
I never stopped reading, learning. I discovered that about 98-99% of what was taught as history was propaganda and bull shit. The dates they usually got right, not much else.
