The writers take liberty with the pen stating ideas and positions that some of these "Amazing Americans" didn't publicly take such as Abraham Lincoln saying that "The war had been won, but the right to bear arms remained. It should have been abolished in a free and equal society." The writers of this book should stick to true facts and not put their own spin on what they would like for the "Amazing Americans" to have said.
