Is any of this taught at U.S. schools or universities nowadays, since it is part of our history?

Question by : Is any of this taught at U.S. schools or universities nowadays, since it is part of our history?
While reading from the true life story “Seven Came Through” by Captain Edward Rickenbacker I decided to look him up on Wikipedia, and found, as usual, a wealth of information, including the story of William Lendrum “Billy” Mitchell who was among other things an aviator before and during WWI and was court-martialed, apparently for going too strongly against the obsolete visions of the Navy back then….I still have a lot of reading to do but one thing which greatly surprised me was the Matewan Massacre in West Virginia and which comes into the story by way of President Harding having “dispatched” Billy Mitchell to stop the warfare between all the groups there. The paragraph on this is rather small and I can’t see the connection between Mitchell who was a genius 100 years ahead of his time and a sort of prophet concerning the use of air craft bombardment, having anything to do with sorting out the disaster that took place in West Virginia!!!

When I was in grammar school few decades back we were shown a short documentary about police fighting and shooting with protesters, apparently before unions came to being, but I doubt it had to do with Matewan. Since English was my second language I know I missed out on a lot of things, but seeing how everyone protests about poor education in the U.S. now it makes me think that every subject should at least be touched upon so everyone at an earlier age can begin understanding more. I guess the end result of poor education is shouting matches between Democrats and Republicans, and every issue going unresolved.

History of the United States from the foundation of Virginia to the reconstruction of the Union (Volume 2)

This historic book may have numerous typos, missing text or index. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. 1887. Not illustrated. Excerpt: … CHAPTER XVIII. CHICKAMAUGA. Burnside sent to Knoxville–Longstreet joins Bragg–Insubordination and Quarrels–Battle of Chickamauga–Grant to the Rescue-Ruinous defeat of Bragg at Chattanooga. The ‘Valley of Virginia’ is enclosed between the Alleghany Mountains on the north-west and the Blue Ridge on the south-east. These ranges run parallel for several hundred miles from the Potomac, where their course is south by west, to the southern border of Tennessee, where the trend is west by south. Winchester lies at the north of the upper part, known as the Valley of the Shenandoah, and Chattanooga at the southern entrance. The southern third of the Valley forms that district which is known as Eastern Tennessee. The battle of Murfreesborough had paralysed for nearly six months the army of Rosecranz. At the close of June 1863 Bragg with 80,000 men confronted Rosecranz with twice that number and a powerful force of cavalry on the Duck River, a tributary of the Tennessee, near the south-western skirts of the Alleghanies. The despatch of Burnside with an independent army down the Valley towards Knoxville, though he lingered as if reluctant to complete the concert which should have enveloped the Confederates, gave Rosecranz courage to advance; and Bragg fell slowly back before him, each position taken up being turned and evacuated, until he crossed the Tennessee, finally abandoned Chattanooga to the enemy, and retired into a hill country formed by three or four parallel ranges of heights, from sixty to a hundred miles in length, which ran thence due southward. Rosecranz and Burnside were alike dilatory and cautious. The latter, despite the I Chap. XVni.J LONGSTHEET SENT TO CHATTANOOGA. 393 urgent orders of Halleck, seemed in no hurry to exchange an easy and independent comm…
