The Heritage Foundation reports a proposal by the State of North Carolina:

It Will Be as if the American Founding Never Happened

Posted February 5th, 2010
Forget George Washington, James Madison, Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln—nothing meaningful happened in America before 1877.

That’s the lesson North Carolina public high schools may start teaching. Under proposed changes in their high school history curriculum, the U.S. History course (which seniors take) will cover events from 1877 forward only.

It will be as if the American Founding never happened.[More]

This would not only avoid unpleasant, divisive, questions about the Civil War, but all that stuff about the dead white male Founders.
