Don't Know Much About mentor Kenneth C. Davis is the history teacher you always wanted to have. His popular probes into hidden history have brightened the weekends of thousands of reluctant students. His new book, A Nation Rising, focuses on six episodes that seldom get mentioned at Fourth of July celebrations and White House receptions. Among the incidents are Aaron Burr's 1807 treason arrest, an 1835 Seminole massacre, the Nativist Bible Riots of 1844, and Jesse Fremont's 1849 journey across the Panama isthmus. Offbeat readings for history buffs.
