Supposedly based on a true event that took place in Cheshire, Massachusetts, in 1801. The cheese went to President Thomas Jefferson and weighed 1235 lbs. Compare with Colonel Meacham's Giant Cheese by Rosemary Nesbitt, which is also supposedly true but which takes place in 1837 in Oswego, New York, with a cheese weighing 1400 lbs. going to President Andrew Jackson. Can they both be true?
