My father believed that President Lincoln was famous for freeing the sleighs. Dad hypothesized they must have gotten stuck in a snow drift, and Lincoln went out and got them unstuck. Really.

I used to believe that o dinosaurs lived in England, or the Americas, or anywhere else for that matter. I thought they all lived on some humongous island in the middle of the Atlantic that dissapeared along with them. I blame Jurassic Park.

I remember looking at the bayeux tapestry, and how at the bottom were pictures of naked soldiers who had been killed and stripped of their armour. I didn't realise this, and thought that they must have just not worn any clothes to battle that day. I also remember being pset at hearing that the English had actually LOST the battle of Hastings.

When I was litle, my aunt used to pull me around in a wagon and say "hail Cleopatra!". When I was in Kindergarden this one kid's mom dressed as leopatra and our teacher said "Look everyone it's Cleopatra". Not knowing who she was but being familier with her name from the "Hail Cleopatra" thing, I assumed she was a one-name celebrity like Madonna. I felt Honored that such a big celecrity would visit MY kindergarden class.

I used to believe (and still do) that my history teacher came from another era and travelled through time to teach us our lessons, then go back to whatever era he was supposed to be in.

When I was first learning about the discovery of America, I thought that my grandmother played an important role in it. I misunderstod the year, instead of 1592, I thought it was 1892 and I thought my grandma was old enough. I don't know why I thought she played an important role in dicovering America though.

I used to be convinced that Abraham Lincoln had been the first president of the United States. I held onto that belief for years, even in the face of overwhelming proof.

well, this belief persisted into high school, until I was humiliatingly corrected in a history class, but since I'm STILL a kid I think it counts... I used to believe that Walt Whitman (poet) and Charles Whitman (guy who shot people from the tower in Austin TX) were the same guy, that later in life Walt Whitman went nuts and went up in that tower and shot everybody, and that this tower was called the ALAMO, and that's why they said "remember the Alamo", like "remember that time Walt Whitman went up in that tower and shot all those people?"

I thought Elgin's marbles we're pre-historic marbles, as in the sort you
play with. It wasn't until I walked around the display hall in the British
Museum, past all these really boring statues, turned round to my husband
(yes I was an adult before I figured it out) and said "so where are they
then? I can't see any marbles!", that I found out the truth (after he'd
finished laughing at me).

I volunteer in a first grade classroom. One day the teacher asked the kids what the name of the ship was that the Pilgrims came to America on. One kid shouted out "The Cauli-flower!" It was so funny I almost burst out laughing. Then another kid said, "It's not the Cauliflower. It's the Cornflower." I guess the only part of "Mayflower" they could remember was the flower!

When I was in primary school and about 8, I came to the conclusion that Beatrix Potter made the Bayeux Tapestry, because I thought they were spelt similarily and obviously I got confused.

When I was little I thought those old photos and portraits (Napoleon, etal) with one hand in the front coat lapel meant that they were scratching.
Actually, maybe I was right.

When I was about six or maybe seven or eight I had started to learn about slavery and for some reason I thought that around the year 1995 there would be an uprising of racists that would bring slavery back and that me and my mother would be made slaves and she would get beaten all of the time or maybe even killed and then I would be all alone and then I would get beaten. These thoughts plauged me until I learned about the Constitution.
