6 Famous Firsts That Weren't Firsts At All

We all know the inspiring story of Charles Lindbergh being the first person to fly across the Atlantic, but as it turns out, he's only the first person to do it by himself. In fact, eight years before he made the flight, two British men completed the same journey.

And that's not the only incorrect first you were taught in school. Jackie Robinson wasn't the first black man to play professional baseball and Copernicus wasn't the first person to realize the earth revolved around the sun. Cracked has all the details.
