Man vs. History

HISTORY | 10:03 pm

In this new docuseries follows noted storyteller Bill Lepp as he travels some of America's backroads to discover the truth behind some American mysteries and legends, investigating, decoding and, where appropriate, debunking some familiar and widely circulated tales involving figures from Johnny Appleseed and Davy Crockett to Houdini. The Wild West is especially fertile ground for many of these tall tales, so the series premiere, "Billy the Kid's Great Escape," finds Lepp putting that escape to a factual test. He also attempts Annie Oakley's most difficult shot.
