No New Facts in National Geographic’s ‘Killing Lincoln’ [REVIEW]

After watching the television show 'Killing Lincoln' last night, I can officially say I felt cheated. I believe the story, as well as the Kennedy assassination, have been exploited and over-analyzed for years, and people like me only watch shows about them in the hope that the author has gained some insight or uncovered some new fact that will add some interest to the subject.

Missouri’s Other President: David Rice Atchison

If you were asked the trivia question, "Name the Presidents of the United States that came from Missouri," one would easily come up with the answer Harry S Truman. However, when the buzzer rings awaiting a second answer, you may not come up with it. David Rice Atchison would be the second answer.

Some made light of the fact that President Obama did a private oath on Sunday and then a formal one on Monday. Well this could be for good reason as the President's term goes from Jan. 20 to Jan. 20.  However, with the Jan. 20 occurring on a Sunday this year, we could have run into a situation similar to why it is speculated that Atchison was President for one day.
