For "Forgotten Heroes", a few of the country's leading historians were invited to choose their favorite stories of under appreciated Americans. From Stephen Jay Gould on deaf baseball player Dummy Hoy, to Alfred Kazin on "the failed president" John Quincy Adams, to Christine Stansell on Margaret Anderson, the publisher of James Joyce's "Ulysses". This audiobook includes nearly as many women as men, and nearly as many people before 1900 as after.
