“To me, the only way to make history talk, for it to really grab you, is to get as close to it as possible”, says Henry Rollins, “You need incredible access and a great deal of persistence to get where you want to go. We did it.”
Over the course of the series Rollins will encounter wild personalities, national treasures, and provocative details about some of America’s most fascinating subjects. Whether he’s analyzing centuries-old documents at the National Archives, exploring the inside of a dead gangster’s speakeasy, or exploring the most shocking facts surrounding presidential assassins– he’s on a mission to discover 10 Things that the casual history fan absolutely needs to know.
In the premiere episode, Rollins has his sights set on the most shocking facts surrounding presidential assassinations.
