How long was America’s longest war?

Posted by in Best Of, Questions

An old issue came up recently for me in conversation: a little while ago, USA Today published an article which called out Afghanistan as “America’s longest war.”  History buffs were quick to cry fowl; America’s longest war would clearly be the Vietnam War, they said!  Every high school student of history […]
