Reasearching our prodject was not the easiest thing to do. We had to look for a long time before we could find any information. And then when we finnally found our information we copied it and pasted it to this document. We think that the information is trustworthy beacause we found it on the dalton sight. It was from www.galenet.galegroup.com/. It has lots of different biographies about all different people.


Where do you think you should look to fact-check this information? I would recommend checking Biography Resource Center linked on the MSL's page to see if he was even blind in one eye to start with. Then, you'll need to figure out if ALL OTHER presidents did not suffer from the same affliction. — RHF
