Great job Nathan. I applied for a teaching job once, and the head of the history dept asked me what part of American history was most important to me. I said American Revolution. She paused and said in her ten years of working, I was the first to say that. She said civil war was most important and I didn't get the job.

And some people wonder why the country is in its present circumstances. Nothing is going to change if childrens minds continue to be filled with pc, socialist, revisionist, govt school bs.
