Overview

Rachel Corrie, an American, was killed by an Israeli bulldozer while trying to prevent the destruction of a Palestinian home in 2003. The Chicago Seven were arrested for protesting the Vietnam War at the 1968 Democratic convention. Philip Vera Cruz laid the groundwork for the United Farm Workers movement. Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck are trying to counter what they see as dangerous trends in American society and government. Their stories and many others like them are a vital thread in the fabric of American history.
