Great idea for a book, but the content is a bit weak/inaccurate in places.

Armstrong has chosen 100 stories, each one the portrait of an event or a person from American history, that together tell the story of our country. From the familiar—the Pilgrims, Ben Franklin, the Gold Rush—to the unfamiliar—the Cucaracha slide, the great Molasses flood, the newsboy strike—these stories connect to one another to provide a fresh look at history. Illustrated with full-color drawings.
