Great story for Black history and its a true story that many had not heard before. My grandchildren loved it.

This is one of my favorite books as a child. Even if Phoebe never existed, it is still a great story for little ones to read.

On Saturday, July 29, 2006, I visited the Fraunces Tavern at 54 Pearl Street in New York City. I looked forward to this visit as I have always loved reading this book to primary and middle grade children. Most people looking at the Fiction category of this book would consider this Historical Fiction. Imagine my disappointment when I discovered while at the Fraunces Tavern Museum that this story is all bogus. Samuel Fraunces was a white man. What a sad yet valuable excursion.

Back in 1860, BJ Lossing wrote "Life of Washington" and first mentioned this fabricated story. Yes, there was a Thomas Hickey but he was tried on passing counterfeit money - not trying to kill Washington.

And Samuel Fraunces was not only white (he was a Freemason, a member of NY's Trinity Church and could vote) - but records do not show him even having a child with the name Phoebe.

What a shame to scam budding minds, when the truth could have been just as exciting!
