    I enjoyed the read, but I’m always amazed at how egocentric Americans are. Most of the population of the US are immigrants, unless of course a person is Native American, in which case that person is believed to have been an early migrant from Asia. On the other hand, I will give the author credit for at least mentioning the illegal immigration of Anglos back when the land was still a part of Mexico in the 1800′s…

      Wrong. Both the Spanish and later Mexican governments wanted and welcomed Anglo immigrants.

      About the ‘From Revolution to Reconstruction and beyond’ project

      In November 1994 a group of students from the Arts Faculty of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands under my supervision created a World Wide Web-site dedicated to the pre-World War I history of the United States of America. The primary goal of this project was to improve basic computer-skills of the students and to teach them a number of more advanced skills. We started with a scanned booklet the American Information Agency provides for free abroad: An Outline of American History.

      It became a very stimulating experience and the site grew and grew over the years. Many more students helped to add other Outline editions , as well as biographies, presidential speeches, historical documents and essay contributions. My students and I have learned a lot in this project: history can be great fun!

      It certainly read like European college student revisionism of American history. Nice try.
