From the "Don't Know Much About History" Collection

(A sub-folder of the "We Live in a Stupid Country" file)

Take a peek at this
gem.

I was checking out some Flickr photos of New York to compare to the ones I just took. Some genius called "Lolalaptop" thought they would be cute and snap a bad picture of Hamilton on the 10-spot in front of his grave in the Trinity Church yard in the financial district. She made a little oopsie in her photo entitled "Hamilton x 2" though...

I'm confused... it the picture of Jefferson blocking out the image of Alexander Hamilton they're trying to get?

LOL!!! j.k.

I know many people assume Hamilton and Franklin were US Presidents because of currency, but I've never seen ANYONE stupid enough to confuse Hamilton and Jackson, especially when Jackson's name is written write below his face!!!

I thought Hamilton died before Andrew Jackson became president... ;)

Hamilton dies--1804

Jackson elected--1828

Jackson was a pretty good dueler. Did he kill Hamilton? No, wait, that was Burr ...

Aaron Burr, starting the rich tradition of US Vice Presidents shooting people.
