A Renegade History of the United States

It was not “good” citizens who established American liberty, but “immoral” and “degraded” people on the fringes of society.

3 Credits

This provocative perspective on America’s history claims that the country’s personality was defined not by the ideals of the elites and intellectuals, but by those who throughout  have lived on the fringes of society historyslaves, immigrants, gangsters, and others who challenged the conventions of their day.

It was not “good” citizens who established American liberty, but “immoral” and “degraded” people on the fringes of society whose subversive lifestyles legitimized the taboo and made America the land of the free.

The nation’s history has been driven by clashes between those interested in preserving social order and those more interested in pursuing their own desires. The more these accidental revolutionaries—drunkards, prostitutes, gangsters, unassimilated immigrants, “bad” blacks—persevered, the more American society changed for the better.

This is not the history taught in textbooks or classrooms—this will upend everything you believe about the American past.
