Did you know Hitler's nephew, William Hitler fought against him in World War II? He later changed his name to William Stuart-Houston and served in the U.S. Navy during the war.

That's also very interesting!

Did you know the Whiskey Rebellion was actually over whiskey? Taxes were raised on the alcohol and put distributors at an extreme economic bind.

So much of our history involves alcohol.
