What has happened to American schools? When I was a little boy, boys loved gore. Back then, I vividly remember boys drawing WWII pictures ALL the time (it was the late 60s early 70s). Now, it seems what is normal boyhood is quashed with drugs or policies.

http://www.tfaoi.com/aa/5aa/5aa363c.htm Daugherty used Putnam as the model American hero, a man with the intelligence, leadership, and courage to turn ordinary events into extraordinary exploits. A farmer turned patriot, Putnam reinforced the mythic belief that true American folk heroes were not fantastic supermen, but regular folk who, in fighting for freedom, became legends. Nice article about the mural here.

Did you read any of the EC comics from the 50s?
