From Library Journal:

A potpourri of historical trivia on everything from U.S. presidents to outlaws to ingenuity, this compendium comprises hundreds of brief vignettes that offer often fascinating, obscure facts. More for browsing than reference, this may still provide readers (and librarians) with the answers to some sticky historical trivia questions: Whatever happened to the table at which Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee signed the surrender at Appomatox? Who invented Silly Putty? Buy where this type of book is popular.
