Free (Nook/Kindle-ended) Stupid History

Stupid History: Tales of Stupidity, Strangeness, and Mythconceptions Throughout the Ages by Leland Gregory

Quote:
Product Description
If it would shock you to learn that Benjamin Franklin didn't discover electricity, you'll appreciate this take on hundreds of historical legends and debacles. Historians and humorists alike may be surprised to learn that:

Samuel Prescott made the famous horseback ride into Concord, not Paul Revere. As a member of Parliament, Isaac Newton spoke only once. He asked for an open window. On April 24, 1898, Spain declared war on the U.S., thus starting the Spanish-American War. The U.S. declared war the very next day, but not wanting to be outdone, had the date on the declaration changed from April 25 to April 21.With these and many other stories, leading humorist Leland Gregory once again highlights both the strange and the funny side of humankind.

It's always entertaining to read about misconceptions in history. For example I understand Paul Revere never said, "the British are coming" for the simple fact that the colonists were themselves British. lol. And of course one fact that is overlooked is that the Boston Tea Party took place while the 'Indians' were under the influence of some liquid courage.
