Yes Beck,you go on believing in the American Myth of "exceptionalism" that's been taught in schools for generations if it makes you feel better. Maybe you can ignore the genocide of Native Americans, the kidnapping and trafficking of African Americans, the violent suppression of organized labor and non-violent peace movements, the unleashing of nuclear weapons by killing half a million civilians in Hiroshima/Nagasaki and the advancement of the American Empire through the establishment of over 700 military bases in over 100 countries.  

Howard Zinn was not trying to rewrite history only interpret history from the viewpoint of those to which US history has not been kind.  He wanted to tell the stories of those who risked everything, including their lives, to fight for justice and social change even in the face of violent resistance from the government and the ruling elite. I'd rather my kids go beyond the propaganda that's been taught to generations of Americans and learn the whole truth, positive and negative.  "A People's History of the United States" should be required reading in our public schools.  How can we expect the next generation to avoid repeating mistakes of the past if we refuse to look in the mirror?
