Was the Declaration of Independence secretly written by a teenage orphan girl living in a Philadelphia brothel? Was Abraham Lincoln distracted by the ghost of his long dead first love during the most trying year of the Civil War? Did NASA send a top-secret mission to the moon after Apollo 11 to retrieve Neil Armstrong’s car keys? We can be 99.99 percent certain that the answer to those questions is no. But in this witty and engaging collection of “TwiStories,” writer Wallace Baine plays fantasy historian with wildly entertaining scenarios, each historically accurate to their respective eras … except for the time travel, supernatural visitations and comic absurdities. It’s myth-making at its most mischievous.
