Summary
Respect yourself in the morning -- read One-Night Stands with American History! This collection of little-known facts and anecdotes is American history with the boring parts left out. Richard Shenkman and Kurt Reiger have uncovered numerous stories about hoaxes, inventions, secrets, and rare incidents -- many involving the most famous and powerful people in America. -President U. S. Grant was arrested for speeding in his horse carriage. -J. Edgar Hoover refused to allow people to walk on his shadow. -France shipped Louisiana twenty-five prostitutes because women were in short supply in 1721. -H. L. Hunt won his first oil well in a game of five-card stud. Even historians find that One-Night Stands with American History features fascinating stories they never knew. Now updated with facts and anecdotes from the last twenty years, this volume is a treasure trove of remarkable stories that will startle, entertain, and inform you. And the best part is that they're all true!
