On This Date: From the Pilgrims to Today, Discovering America One Day at a Time

Publisher: Twelve • July 25, 2017 • 448 pages

From the arrival of the Mayflower through the 2016 election, ON THIS DATE explores five hundred years of American history, revealing a compelling tale for each day in the calendar year.

Drawing from Carl M. Cannon’s popular RealClearPolitics’ “Morning Note,” ON THIS DATE is focused on fascinating — and sometimes unknown — stories behind specific dates in U.S. history: What inspired Abraham Lincoln to grow his famous beard, what Dwight Eisenhower really thought about playing football against the great Jim Thorpe, the legal grounds for the first American divorce, who wrote “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer” — and who profited from it.

Colorful yet authoritative, ON THIS DATE debunks some popular myths and celebrates America’s forgotten heroes.
