How Marriage Made the Founding Fathers
During the darkest days of the Revolution and the War of 1812, Martha, Abby and Dolly served as political allies to their husbands. Through their courage and endless adaptability, they also inspired all Americans to have faith that the outcome would be independence and prosperity.

Famous Frauds, Imposters and Hoaxes
A look back at some of the most infamous frauds and imposters of history — the “Cardiff Giant,” the Salem Witch trials, the game show scandals of the 1950s, Irving’s bogus autobiography of Howard Hughes, and the many reasons why we can sometimes be so easily deceived.
