Author Jane Hampton Cook has written books on our nation’s history. On her website, janecook.com, she writes, “Only 13% of 8th grade students are proficient in American history. A way to address this problem is to incorporate historical stories from the American Revolution into other subjects, such as adding novels and books about the American Revolution into American literature courses.” Jane Hampton Cook, author of such books as Stories of Faith and Courage from the Revolutionary War and The Faith of America’s First Ladies, joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss the war on Amerca as founded, the war on American history. www.janecook.com
