Fact or Legend Books of History

I recently read over at the Ann Tucker Blog, a post of a legend about John Wilkes Booth. A very fascinating story that he actually escaped following the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and ultimately ended up in Enis, OK. Grannyann's post titled, Truth or Legend? gives a great summary.

If you find these kind of stories intriguing or are looking for a gift for someone into history, you might consider one of the following books listed @ Amazon.com:

- Return of Assassin: John Wilkes Booth

- The Legend Of John Wilkes Booth: Myth, Memory, And A Mummy (Cultureamerica)

- Escape and Suicide of John Wilkes Booth

Do you know of any fact or legend type stories?
