so, i'm realizing that despite having taken American history twice in high school, i have an appalling grasp on it. (round one was at my old high school, and i don't remember a damned thing from it. in fact, i had to think hard to verify that i did take it in 10th grade. round two was at NCSSM, with a fantastic teacher, but i didn't much care for history. i learned exactly what i needed to, kicked ass on my debates, wrote good essays, and got my grade. that was also the last time i took american history; the next year i took pre-1500 asian lit and history, and at state, i took lits (19th and 20th century russian lit) instead of history.)

that all being said... anyone have recommended reading for someone who's thinking about embarking on a self-study of american history 101?

    I did Not Prime Time this year, which made me actually write something for the first time since Yuletide. It was fun! It was also a lot more low key…
