“So much of what we see in pop culture about American history is told with the entertainment model of a heroic effort landing at a happy ending. Consequently, we’re programmed to subconsciously think that the winner in a historical conflict was the good guy. My job is to help show people that the real stories behind historical moments are often far more complex than a film or TV show can convey, and that every figure in history—indeed every human—is multi-layered, with good and bad traits, and that people of every kind have a part in our country’s story.”
