History can be a funny thing in that it often tells us a lot more about the people writing it than about events that may or may not have actually occurred.
Why, for example, do so many local histories include the story of Lockport's Byron Day -- a two-bit burglar and horse thief who lived during the 1800's -- while none include a chapter on Don Stefano Magaddino, who was for decades the most powerful organized crime boss in the country?
A little bit too recent? Still a little bit too frightening, perhaps?
