This week our Lists of Five: Five Historical Figures That Have Had Their History Re- Written. Abraham Lincoln hunting vampires? What other real people have had their histories ret-conned? Here are five more.
Just a reminder, because we never like to just make things easy on ourselves, our lists are not necessarily top five lists, they are more or a less a list of film recommendations within the theme of the list.
