American Conspiracy Files: The Stories We Were Never Told
Conspiracy theories are not new to our modern time. They date back to
biblical times when Moses sent his spies to check out what the Egyptians
were doing. Espionage is also linked to various conspiracies and is
all mixed up in the same bag of tricks that form any decent conspiracy
Among the stories that are revealed in American Conspiracy
Files are the circumstances surrounding the Lost Colony of Roanoke
whose settlers simply left their homes and were never seen again. The
tales of the deaths of Davy Crockett, Jesse James, and Butch Cassidy
and the Sundance Kid leave the reader wondering just what really
happened to these iconic heroes. Author Peter Kross also reports on conspiracies in
the Revolutionary War, including those surrounding Benedict Arnold and
Ben Franklin’s son, William. He delves into the large conspiracy to
kill President Lincoln and shows that John Wilkes Booth did not act
alone. He then moves into our modern day with chapters on the deaths of
John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, spies in the
Roosevelt administration, the reasons behind the Oklahoma City bombing,
the sordid plots of President Lyndon Johnson and the deaths of people
associated with him, and other interesting tales.
