Jordon, Frederick W.
New England Journal of History, v48 n3 p22-32 Win 1991-92
Discusses the sparse coverage of religion in United States history textbooks. Presents four such textbooks' explanations of the stories of Christopher Columbus and the Massachusetts Bay Colonies. Underscores the relative absence of detail about the religious underpinnings of the two historical situations. Identifies other U.S. historical events with strong religious bases. (SG)
