Frankly, many popular stories and grade-school lessons about U.S. history are myths that Americans have perpetuated throughout the centuries. Some may be half-truths, while others just never happened. How many of us learned about George Washington chopping down a cherry tree, and his being unable to lie about it? It is possible that some of these stories have remained fixed in our culture because they produce good citizens, while others alleviate a sense of guilt for real or perceived past transgressions. Whatever the case, these myths exist in great measure.For this forum, you will need to Google “U.S. history myths” and choose a particular myth. Try to mix it up a little bit. In a minimum of 250 words, introduce your myth and the reality, then explain why you think this it has been immortalized in the American consciousness.
