Wow, that's a lot of pictures but better to many, right! Sorry about the upset stomach, I never was sick flying but I was nervous.
This book is a must read IMHO, very different look at history. “Renegade History of the United States” by Thaddeus Russell.
BTW: This one is good also, especially if you have an interest in the arts.
" A People's Art History of the United States: 250 Years of Activist Art and Artists Working in Social Justice Movements" by Lampert, Nicolas
Enjoy your summer reading.
