? Washington’s four dogs were named Drunkard, Taster, Tipler and Tipsy.
? Unlike melodramatic Hollywood versions, the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral lasted just 30 seconds.
? The incredibly unlucky son of Abe Lincoln witnessed the assassination deaths of three presidents.
? The U.S. refused to pay a $400 littering fine for dropping the space station on Australia.
