We all know what Tom Hanks’ character really did with Wilson on that island.
Death Wish: There once was a crazy man named Maurice Wilson who had a plan to crash a plane on Everest, then climb the rest of the way up... despite not being a pilot or a climber.
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, Zachary Taylor, and Woodrow Wilson were all born in Virginia, making it the birthplace of more Presidents than any other state.
Shockingly, Wilson learned enough about flying to get him to Everest in 1934 and tried unsuccessfully to reach the top, mainly due to his inexperience. He refused to leave with his Sherpas and tried again, alone. He died in his tent.
