 country since 2003.





American Factoids:


The Mayflower Pilgrims landed in Plymouth, Massachusetts, not because it was their destination, but, rather, because they were running out of "victuals and beer." Had these vital supplies not been so low, they would have continued on to their original destination of Virginia.



Pilgrims land at Plymouth



Topeka, Kansas was the scene of many a gun battle, but the most bizarre incident occurred in the Kansas House of Representatives where Boston Corbett, the reported killer of John Wilkes Booth, Lincoln's assassin, ran amuck. Corbett threatened to kill several state congressmen for stalling legislation; he finally surrendered his weapon without shooting anyone and was sent to an insane asylum.



The telephone was invented in 1876. The first community to have a telephone after the White House got one, was Deadwood, South Dakota.


 Did You Know?


According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are about 4.5 million Native Americans and Alaska Natives in the United States today. Thatís about 1.5 percent of the population.

Hey, Ya'll! 


Dave and Kathy at Big Nose Kate's Saloon in Tombstone, Arizona

Lots of folks think Legends of America is a big corporation with dozens of employees -- because we've been around so long & provide thousands of web pages -- Nope, we're not.


Legends is actually comprised of just two of us -- Dave & Kathy, who have a love of history, travel, and a desire to share it with the world!


Though we are a small Mom & Pop "shop", we have decades of customer service & business experience between the two us -- in both large and small organizations. With an entrepreneurial dream, we launched Legends of America in 2003


We are Midwest born and bred with great values. You'll find, with just an email, phone call, or order, that our customer service is Over the Top!!


The Legends General Store and our Photo Shop are the means for providing the volumes of information to our readers at no cost.
