I thought that the Titanic rammed into the iceberg on purpose, as I thought they figured the ship was so tough it would just plow through it unharmed. I didn't learn the truth till a few years ago. I think I thought this because of how much they bragged about it being unsinkable

Before learning about the Cold War, I thought that the space race was actually two spaceships, one from America amd one from Russia, that launched at the same time to see which one would get to the moon fastest.

I used to believe that Clint Eastwood actually lived in the old west, but I also knew that he was still alive in the present day (this was around 2009 or so), so you can imagine how old he must've been if that was the case. I probably believed this because the main place I learned about him from was Back to the Future.

I thought the Civil War was between North America and South America. It was only when I was asking my mother how the "north" could blockade the "south" when there was just so much available coastline that I figured out what was wrong
