This is a collection of stories where the word "true" is sometimes open to interpretation. Some of the stories are true in the hard sense, for example Gregory Potemkin did in fact build artificial villages in order to demonstrate to Empress Catherine the Great that he was achieving great things in the Crimea. There are many coincidences between the presidencies of Abraham Lincoln and John Kennedy. A Japanese soldier did hide out on Guam for nearly three decades after World War II ended.
