That picture was of women and men from the 1940's and 1950's. See how pretty the women were? How handsome the men were? What happened between then and now?

Christipher Columbus DIDNT discover america! He discovered the place we call the Bahamas AND he and his men killed a race of indians called Plíni. And they started smallpox. Carrie R.

Columbus actually found the islands around America, and technically he wasn't the first one to find them because there were people already there. All of these explorers were phonies in my book. They basically found land inhabitted by people they considered savages so they claimed it for their country. They are the most selfish disrespectful people in the history books by my observation.

Paul Revere wasn't actually the first one to ride and alert officials of war. Another man (I forget his name) alerted first and we would've been fine off. But we pick to publicize Paul Revere because revere means respect and admiration.

James A. Garfield could write with both hands in Greek and Latin at the same time.

Art Crazy52 Kennedy was elected in 1960 and Lincoln in 1860 that's a hundred years apart not a year. Their deaths were also on 1963 and 1865 that's a 102 years apart.

Wish I had a great history teacher like Carrie R. who made that article I think...then, it'll become more fun instead of me being the only one in my 7th grade history class interested in it...Smile Carrie R.

Later after they found out people were being buried alive they put a bell in a persons coffin so if they were alive that person would ring it and someone would come dig them out. Kind of creepy right?

I didn't hear about all of these, but I did hear a couple before. I had US History in eighth grade(going of to high school!) and I heard some wierd and funny stuff. My teacher even showed the creepy coincidences between President Lincoln and President . Did u know their deaths are exactly a year apart? Also they were elected a year apart. Both of their assassins(I'm not sure I spelled that right, LOL) were known by 3 names and had 15 letters in their name(not the presidents). President Lincoln was killed in Ford Theatre, President Kennedy was killed in a car made by Ford called Lincoln. Spooky isn't it?

by Art Crazy52 on 7/4/2012 7:00:06 AM

 
 

Did you know that some people believe there was a president for a day? It was because James K. Polk job ended on a Sunday, and Zachary Taylor was religious so he didn't take it up that day.

leif erikson (not sure i spelled his name right) discovered america before christopher columbus, but for some reason we celebrate christopher columbus instead. all he really did was sail to the wrong place...

Very useful information you have here

by Bobalina on 7/4/2012 3:46:38 AM

 
 

I have one. One of the presidents(forgot which one)refused to wear a coat while giving the inagural address and got sick and died a month later after he went into office.

Funny thing, I was taught all these things in History
