Problematic History Textbooks May Return to Virginia

I am quoted in Hattie Brown Garrow, “Problematic History Textbooks May Return to Virginia,” Virginian-Pilot, 22 September 2011.

The lede: “Thumbing through two elementary history texts this summer, Zachary Schrag spotted what he described as dubious quotations, misleading images and maps depicting inaccurate borders. His list of errors – including a reference to the ‘United States Navel Academy’ – fills nearly four pages.”

For the full list, see My comments on Five Ponds Press revised drafts.
