TIME Magazine often asks a bunch of historians questions like “Who were the most influential Americans?” or “Who were the 100 most significant figures in history?”

You can find links to all them at The Best “Lists Of Lists” Of Influential People, Events & Ideas.  I use them as models when I have my students answer similar questions in class.

Today, TIME shared the answers to a different question: 21 Lessons From America’s Worst Moments.

And, this time, it looks like they have made an attempt to get a more diverse group of historians to answer their question than in the past.
