Killer History: Why do they leave all the fun stuff out of the history books? is an irreverent look at the past. We will look at Thomas Jefferson’s presidential hobby. We will explore if George Washington married a hot babe. You may not have known about Woodrow Wilson’s fascination with traffic laws enforcement. We will dig into the presidential scandals of the Grant Administration. We will also explore if Richard Nixon’s drinking nearly caused World War III.
Marek McKenna is like our papaparazzi for the dead. We tend to genuflect before our mythic forebears, but this book reveals how often these all-too-human men and women get on their own knees for various reasons. This collection of untold historical vignettes lets us laugh over our eternal, universal human foibles.
