Freethinkers: A History of American Secularism by Susan Jacoby

Freethinkers: A History of American Secularism - Susan Jacoby

An interesting look at the history of freethinkers or secularists throughout American history. Somewhat bothersome information about religion's role as well, especially with current issues. Waned a bit as it got toward modern times, but a decent read all the same.
