THIS IS A CROSSBAR

History and Biography Book Group

Wednesday, March 01 at 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
Home of James Hardin, 1210 C Street SE. Six steps to front door; second-floor bathrooms only.

In "American Nations: A History of the Eleven Regional Nations of North America (2011) 322 pages text, historian and journalist Colin Woodard argues that individual Americans hold differing opinions on basic concepts such as freedom, religion, and what it means to be an American because we are really eleven "nations," each with its own history and culture. Appeals for "unity" and for restoring "fundamental founding values," or descriptions of the country as divided between "red" and "blue" states, liberal and conservative, are too simplistic to explain a nation that evolved as a "confederation" of eleven regional cultures. The myriad backgrounds, outlooks, and experiences of the people of these regions are reflected in the U.S. Congress and our presidential elections; they have shaped our past and are molding our future.
