In Obama's Election, a Textbook Case of History in the Making for Students This Fall





For many, the excitement of the 2008 presidential election was about witnessing a moment that people would one day read about in history books.

Well, the first draft of history has a release date: this fall.

On Page 1,126 of the newest edition of “United States History,” a Pearson textbook for high schoolers that is due in classrooms this fall, a picture of Barack Obama at his election night rally in Chicago appears next to the red-lettered headline “An Historic Moment.”

The newest editions of middle- and high-school history and government textbooks by McGraw-Hill, also scheduled for a fall release, include an eight-page supplement with a picture of Mr. Obama on the cover and the words “A New President.”
