It seems like history is being made almost every day. The fall of Baghdad, the toppling of giant statues of Saddam Hussein. Images that may join the collective consciousness next to Iwo Jima or the fall of the Berlin Wall. In an effort to provide a break from the weightiness of current events, we take a look at some of history's lesser known and near- forgotten moments. Host John Ydstie speaks with Rick Beyer, author of The Greatest Stories Never Told — 100 Tales from History to Astonish, Bewilder, and Stupefy. (Available from HarperResource, ISBN: 0060014016.)
