Product Details


“An excellent and well-written book. Litwicki has undertaken a massive task and succeeded. America’s Public Holidays provides an excellent overview of the cultural history of public celebrations.”—Journal of American History

“A compelling ethno-cultural interpretation of the historical origins of modern American holidays, as well as a demonstration of how such commemorations emerged from the competition of ethnic and racial groups to tell America’s story as their own.”—David Blight, Public Historian
