True History of Fairy Tales
Cinderella's stepsisters cut their feet to make them fit into the golden slipper and Rumpelstiltskin tore himself in half when the miller's daughter found out his name. You won't see these horrific endings on any Disney movie.

Happy Accidents
Did you know that Velcro was developed when a scientist found burdocks on his dog's fur? Or that the potato chip was invented by an angry chef? Read about these and more "happy Accidents" that became everyday household products.

The Great Chicago Fire
Mrs. O'Leary's cow was blamed for a fire that ripped through Chicago destroying some 70,000 buildings and 73 miles of road and caused the death of at least 300 people.

Clara Barton
Clara Barton helped form the American Red Cross after her visit to the International Red Cross in Europe during the Franco-Prussian War. She served as the American Red Cross's first president.

Marie Laveau
Marie Laveau was the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. She was well respected and even today people still visit her tomb and leave offerings for her to still help grant peoples' wishes.
