America: Facts vs. Fiction

8 Episodes | See full episode list »
Filling in the holes, debunking the myths and making whole the half-truths of history is the essence of ``America: Facts vs. Fiction.'' Hosted by former naval officer and actor Jamie Kaler, the series digs deep into many myths and legends to explore how and why historical details are sometimes altered to produce a more compelling narrative. Paul Revere, for example, didn't gallop through Middlesex County shouting, ``The British are coming!'' to warn residents of the impending war, and similarly juicy details tied to other events and people have been lost, distorted, covered up or simply ignored as years passed. Kaler, by the way, is best known as an actor for his role in the TBS comedy ``My Boys.''
