A man sitting at a metal table, squinting in the harsh spotlight, grins for his wife, who giddily snaps pictures of her husband being interrogated by a menacing J. Edgar Hoover. A couple of rooms away, a group watches a wildly dancing Beyonce as Destiny Child's hit song "Bootylicious" plays in the background. Not far off, Robert E. Lee sits grimly with a quill poised above a sheet of parchment, about to admit defeat and surrender the Confederacy.
