Book Description:
- In 1921, a bankrupt H.L. Hunt won his first oil well in a game of five-card stud.- Women were in such short supply in Louisiana in 1721 that the government of France shipped twenty-five prostitutes to the colony.- U.S. Grant was arrested, while President, for speeding in his horse carriage.- Lord Cornbury, a governor of New York from 1702 to 1708, was a transvestite.- J. Edgar Hoover refused to allow people to walk on his shadow. These and other remarkable facts are recorded -- and documented -- in this fascinating treasure trove of little-known facts about American history. Based on exhaustive research, this irreverent collection will startle, amuse, entertain, and inform -- and every word is true.
