After the Fact: The Surprising Fates of American History's Heroes, Villains, and Supporting Characters - Softcover

 
9780399537530: After the Fact: The Surprising Fates of American History's Heroes, Villains, and Supporting Characters
“Where Are They Now?” meets History 101.

We’re all familiar with the seminal events and key players in our nation’s history. But what about the lives lived after the fact?

Picking up where traditional histories leave off, After the Fact uncovers the telling details of history’s most compelling subplots:  
  • After his famous midnight ride, Paul Revere was later kicked out of the militia for his role in the Penobscot Expedition, the most disastrous military blunder of the Revolutionary War.
  • Consumed with guilt over his role as a magistrate in the Salem Witch Trials, Samuel Sewell became an advocate for both African and Native American rights.
  • Years after clashing with bootleggers like Al Capone, former Prohibition agent Eliot Ness was involved in a hit-and-run accident while driving under the influence of alcohol.
  • After her famous bus ride, Rosa Parks worked as a seamstress, performed behind-the-scenes volunteer work for the NAACP, and sued the band Outkast.
  • After resigning the presidency, Richard Nixon unwittingly testified on behalf of Deep Throat in an unrelated conspiracy trial.
