• George Washington allegedly said before his death that
he "would never set foot on English soil again," so when
they erected a statue of him in London, they put US soil
under the statue to honor that claim

    • This is true! Those responsible for installing Washington’s statue in London bore the President’s sentiment in mind, and so arranged for a quantity of Virginian soil to be placed beneath the plinth, thus ensuring that the statue is technically on American turf.

    • How hard do you think it would be to steal a President's bones? Not an historically significant president like Washington or Lincoln, but say I wanted to steal Martin Van Buren's bones, how hard do you think it'd be?
