The rumors persist. Was the president ACTUALLY born in the U.S.?

To investigate, we traveled down Chester Arthur Road, to the Chester Arthur Historic Site (which USED to be called the birthplace).

Is it possible that Chester Alan Arthur was born in Kenya?

No, no. Come on! Dumville laughed.

Fairfields town clerk, Amanda Forbes, showed us their evidence: A town record that indicates that William Arthur was elected to a school board months before Arthurs birth in 1829.

This is sort of as good as it gets in terms of evidence? asked Rocca.

Yes, said Forbes. We dont have any concrete birth certificate. I wish we did, but we dont.
