True Facts behind the Legends Author artist Robert A. Powell reveals the exciting true story behind 16 Kentucky Legends, which are among the favorites in American folklore. Separating fact from myth is not always easy; however, the truth is positively fascinating in every instance. Most of the names should be quite familiar, and perhaps even some of the stories, but many of the actual facts behind the stories will probably surprise you and the interesting details of the story that made them a legend will offer interesting facts in every situation. The Legends include: Casey Jones, Legend of the Rails; Hatfields & McCoys, A Bitter Mountain Feud; Cassius Clay, Lion of Whitehall; Daniel Boone, Frontier Hero or American Traitor?; Ephraim McDowell, Father of Abdominal Surgery; Nathan Stubblefield, Kentucky Farmer & Inventor; Col. Eben C. Henson, Alligator Wrestler in Central Kentucky; Alben Barkley, The Man Who Would Be President; Gen. John Hunt Morgan, Thunderbolt of the Confederacy; Adolph Rupp, Baron of the Bluegrass; Harland Sanders, The Image of a Kentucky Colonel; Jenny Wiley, Tenacious Frontier Courage; Man O War, Legend of a Thoroughbred Champion; Abraham Lincoln, Kentuckys Favorite Son?; Jefferson Davis, Father of the Confederacy; Stephen Foster & My Old Kentucky Home. This outstanding volume is profusely illustrated with old photos and pen-ink drawings by the author.
