8. Comic History of the United States by Bill Nye

Comic History of the United States by Bill Nye

About Podcast For American journalist and humorist Edgar Wilson Nye who wrote under the pen name Bill Nye in the late 19th century, facts are not to be presented in their newborn, bare state. They should be properly draped and embellished before they can be presented before the public. Hence, in the Comic History of the United States published in 1894, he gives his readers the facts. But in a bid to make the historical figures more human he describes them as people who ate and possibly drank, people who were born, flourished, and died, not grave tragedians posing perpetually for their photographs.
