The Balloon Hoax Article

Description

The story The Balloon Hoax actually appeared in the April 13, 1844 New York Sun, and was about the fictitious first transatlantic voyage, which people that read it were actually believing. Even though this article is real, I decided to include a copy to show how sometimes fictional stories can be perceived as true.
