Founding Myths:
Stories That Hide Our Patriotic Past

by Ray Raphael
Published by The New Press
Hardcover - August 2004
Paperback - July 2006

Description from The New Press:
With wit and flair, Founding Myths exposes the errors and inventions in thirteen of America's most cherished tales, from Paul Revere's famous ride to Patrick Henry's "Liberty or Death" speech. Exploring the dynamic intersection between history-making and story-making, award-winning author and historian Ray Raphael shows how these fictions - conceived in the narrowly nationalistic politics of the nineteenth century - undermine our democratic ideals.
