(Silver Spring, MD) - Back for its sophomore season, American Heroes Channel (AHC)'s series AMERICA: FACTS VS. FICTION embarks on all-new adventures exploring the truths and hidden secrets of the nation's past. Hosted by former Naval officer and actor/comedian, Jamie Kaler, the series uncovers surprising and unknown details of American history to draw a line in the sand separating fact and fiction. Discover the truths behind the baffling disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle, find out what pirates really did with their treasure instead of burying it, and learn the shocking realities about prohibition beyond the seemingly lively roaring twenties. Season two of AMERICA: FACTS VS. FICTION premieres with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, October 7 at 10 and 10:30 PM ET, and will premiere regularly on Tuesdays at 10 PM ET beginning Tuesday, October 14 on AHC.

Season two kicks off with the premiere of "Fool's Gold" on Tuesday, October 7 at 10 PM ET. In this episode, Kaler reveals the shocking truth about America's biggest boom and biggest bust. The series digs into the startling facts about how one treasure was discovered during the California gold rush and - another lost with the Stock Market Crash of 1929. Then at 10:30PM ET, the true stories of the Alamo and Custer's Last Stand are very different from the way we remember them. Find out how Davy Crockett really died, and why General Custer might have been court-martialed if he hadn't attacked the Indians that outnumbered him.
