Over the centuries, mankind has endured many tales of situations that defy logic. Haunted houses featuring furniture that moves on its own, strange noises, and sightings of apparitions have been passed down from generation to generation. For instance, did you know that the man that attempted to save Abraham Lincoln later attempted to kill his children and successfully murdered his wife and then spent the rest of his life in an insane asylum?
History is filled with tales of the uncanny that we intend to bring to light here. Some are merely common sense anecdotes, such as the fact that during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, heads literally exploded. Others will surprise you. Were you aware that Joan of Arc’s companion was a serial killer? History is filled with sinister tales about man’s inhumanity toward man and we intend to present all of them here to you. We invite you on a guided tour as we take the mystery out of history.
