UNSOLVED MYSTERIES of AMERICAN HISTORY Did Leif Ericsson beat Columbus to America? Did Pocahontas really save John Smith? Was Amelia Earhart a spy? Who killed JFK? These are just a few of the intriguing mysteries of American history. Unsolved Mysteries of American History re-creates the most mystifying events of our past and follows some of our greatest historians as they search for answers. Like seasoned detectives, these historians gather evidence, pore over eyewitness testimony, head down some dead ends, unmask liars and frauds, and offer their solutions. Here is everything you'd want in a great detective story: the twists and turns, the intellectual challenges, even the espionage and murder. Bringing clarity and a beautifully balanced perspective to his diverse subjects, Paul Aron makes sense of all the latest discoveries and speculation, revealing: What was the meaning of CROATAN, the puzzling letters carved on the fort at the Lost Colony of Roanoke? Do reports from the Mexican side of the legendary battle suggest that Davy Crockett did not die at the Alamo? What prompted Confederate Army mastermind Robert E.

What Happened to the Lost Colony of Roanoke? Did Pocahontas Save John Smith? What Caused the Salem Witch-Hunt? Was Daniel Boone a Traitor? Why Did Benedict Arnold Turn Traitor? Was Sally Hemings the Mistress of Thomas Jefferson? Was Meriwether Lewis Murdered? Was Rachel Jackson a Bigamist? How Did Davy Crockett Die? Why Did Lee Order Pickett's Charge? Who Was to Blame for Wounded Knee? What Destroyed the Maine? Were Sacco and Vanzetti Guilty? Who Kidnapped the Lindbergh Baby? Did Babe Ruth Call His Shot? Was Amelia Earhart a Spy? Who Was to Blame for Pearl Harbor? Why Did Truman Drop the Bomb? Were the Rosenbergs Guilty? Who Killed JFK? What Happened at the Gulf of Tonkin? Who Killed Malcolm X?
