Big Draw

Frederic Schwarz’s column “History Happened Here” in the May/June issue was excellent, except I felt that the writer left out the most interesting object in the Farmers’ Museum at Cooperstown, New York. The Cardiff Giant, probably the most successful hoax perpetrated on the American public during the nineteenth century, is on display there and deserves some recognition.

We hope you enjoy our work.
