Tour guides telling lies

In Philadelphia, tour guides will soon have regulations about what they can say because they've been telling some tall tales. According to a historian there, these are among the 84 lies he's heard from the tour guides:

*Ben Franklin had 80 illegitimate children all in Sweden.

*City Tavern is where the First Continental Congress met.

*The large house at 3rd and Walnut is where Kevin Bacon lives.

*Dolly Madison invented ice cream at Ben Franklin’s Library.

*Betsy Ross had three cats she named Red, White and Blue.
