What is the history of French fries?

Interestingly, the name French Fry is misleading since its origin is believed to be Belgium. Originally, residents of small villages in Belgium would cut the fries into the shape of fish, especially in winter, when it was difficult to catch fish due to frozen rivers. The name French fries was adopted when American troops during World War I got their hands-on Belgian Fries. The Belgian army would speak in French, and therefore the troops thought they were in France instead of Belgium. French fries hit America in 1856 when a recipe for the delicacy was included in the E. Warren's cookery book 'Cookery for Maids of All Work.' Things got even spicy when the first McDonalds' store opened in California, and French fries was part of its fast-selling food. National French Fry Day is now observed across America though its origin is not known.
