All Nation Builders are familiar with myths. During and after their lifetimes, myths and misinformation, both positive and negative, swirled around them. Even the 18th-century world itself has myths formed about it that are lodged in modern societal thought. Come and discuss with our Nation Builders what is true, what is not, and how such beliefs and stories could have developed. From false teeth to property ownership, from quotes to hygiene, Nation Builders and the historians who portray them tackle myths of their 18th-century world.
