I used to believe that Davey Crockett was a wonderful, gentle frontiersman, just like they portrayed him on the Wonderful World of Disney. I recently found out that he killed MANY Indians! Interesting how Disney left that part out. I don't care for Davey Crockett anymore. Maybe I was confused because Fess Parker also played Daniel Boone.

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.

I used to believe that a childs life was a warm fuzzy, always happy one, having always lived on a small farm in Illinois. Then one day I went to the movies with my mother and father. Seen the huge bombs falling like rain on the German, English, Japanese towns,just to name a few in the world at that time. "Where do the kids go Dad?" He never answered me. I never seen life in the same happy eyes again.

I thought that most if not all dinosaurs turned into fossils when they died and I didn't know it took a long time but thought they just turn into a fossil instantly when they die

Ancient Egypt always seemed to a very young me a very exciting place, but I was scared of actually being there, because historical egyptians were often shown in my pictures with heads of crocodiles, dogs, birds and other animals. I took this to be some sort of occupational hazard in being an egyptian, as they must have existed, or how otherwise could anyone have drawn them?

While going to school in Chicago and learning about the great Chicago fire, I was sitting in the back yard with my mother while she was feeling great, young and healthy, I asked "Mom...whatever happened at the end of the world"

When I was in grade school we sang a song about the Erie Canal. I thought the Erie Canal was still in use until I moved to New York at age 24. Now I drive down Erie Boulevard, where it used to be.

One day I stared at the cover of a Peoples magazine which said that Ford was the sexiest man alive. At that point I was extremely disturbed because I thought that they meant Gerald Ford, the ex-president, not Harrison Ford,the actor!

I used to believe Bob Dole was Bob Dylan. In second grade we had a mock election when the 1996 presidential election was happening. So I thought that Bob Dylan was the person running against Bill Clinton. So I voted for Bob Dole thinking I was voting for Bob Dylan. The teacher called my parents wondering why I voted for Bob Dole.

I recently visited madame tusauds in amsterdam and noticed that it hasn't really been that long since einstein died, i found this extremely hard to believe as i always thought he had lived in the 17th/18th century, it wasn't til i thought about it logically i realised that it makes alot more sense he was around in the 20th century!!!

When I was 7 I went to Disney World. There is this show thing that is about American history and I remember one part in it about Abraham Lincoln. I remember him saying something about being black and white and that is why he wanted to free the slaves. (I think I misunderstood it.) It made since to me, because he was on the penny which was copper, (those of you who don't live in the U.S., all the other coins are silver), and in all of the illustrated history books I had seen, his skin looked tanner than all the other presidents in them. I still don't know what the guy in the show at Disney World was actually saying.
