Here's a sampling of who are the heroes described in this book whom you might not expect to be included: Robert E. Lee who led the South in battle, Juliette Gordon Low who founded the Girl Scouts, John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie (two fabulously successful businessmen who dedicated so much of their fortunes to making this a better country. The author also has an interesting section called "Frauds," which exposes some people who achieved fame and a large following but who do not deserve to be called heroes. You will have to read the book to find out who they are. The title of this provocative book is The Politically Incorrect Guide to Real American Heroes by Brion McClanahan.
