Summary
Brief biographies of nearly 500 men and women who shaped United States history including, for each, a photograph or picture, birth and death dates, and a brief essay describing why that person is notable. From Pocahontas to Rosa Parks, Ben Franklin to Bill Gates, Babe Ruth to Dr. Seuss, this collection of mini-biographies describes the lives and accomplishments of the Americans that kids need to know about for school and want to know about for fun. Each of the nearly 500 entries includes a photo, birth and death dates, and a description of what made that person famous-or infamous! There are two entries per page as well as 34 full-page extended entries. A quotation from one of the outstanding Americans runs across each spread.--
