Taylor Swift is a fan of American history. In a issue of Rolling Stone, Taylor reveals she finished Laurence Learner's book The Kennedy Women, which traces the lineage of the Kennedys all the way back to Ireland in the 1800s. She's also picked up books about John Adams, President Lincoln's cabinet, the founding fathers and Ellis Island.
During her tour through New York, the New York Historical Society was closed when Taylor tried to swing by. Taylor did get to to the Museum of Natural History and see the dinosaur fossils while in New York City, though.
