Synopsis: "What, then, is the American, this new man?" asked a famous French observer of America back in 1782. More than two hundred years later, we're still asking the same question. Today, we're also asking questions about cultural literacy - what do we need to know about who we are as a people? Who are the pivotal figures past and present who have helped shaped who we are and how we look at ourselves as Americans? Alan Axelrod, author of the recently released "1001 Events That Made America" and the popular "What Every American Should Know about American History", suggests we can answer these questions only after we look with an open mind into our collective past and understand those who have shaped our selves and our nation. The book's concise, engaging profiles of 1001 Americans capture the famous as well as infamous and the virtuous as well as notorious from the early days of our nation's history to the present. From Jesse James to Al Capone, Harriet Beecher Stowe to Betty Friedan, Harriet Tubman to Martin Luther King, Jr., George Washington to George W., John Jacob Aster to Bill Gates, John L. Sullivan to Muhammad Ali, Stephen Foster to Elvis, Edwin Booth to Marlon Brando, Washington Irving to Thomas Pynchon, Charles Wilson Peale to Andy Warhol - "1001 People Who Made America" provides a very human side to history.
