Sixteen year old Amy Myers, a 10th grader and a lover of History and Civics, has formally issued a written challenge to Michele Bachmann, telling the congresswoman: “Rep. Bachmann, the frequent inability you have shown to accurately and factually present even the most basic information about the United States led me to submit the following challenge, pitting my public education against your advanced legal education.”
Bachmann is trying to avoid the challenge, and she should. It is expected that Bachmann will announce her intentions to run for President in 2012, but she has, on numerous occasions, shown her limited knowledge of the most basic of American History. Bachmann even suggested that the Revolutionary War began in Concord, N.H., rather than Lexington and Concord, Mass. – just one example of where her knowledge of American history fails her.
Miss Myers explains in more details, the reason for her challenge below.
