  • Abe Lincoln founded the Republican party and simultaneously founded the Modern Civil Rights Movement only to have his opponents the Democrats 120 years later try and claim it as all theirs when it was something history shows they opposed repeatedly through the 1970s and in to the 1980s.
  • I'll give you two. Most people don't really know that Lincoln was actually really good friends with Czar Alexander II of Russia. In fact, it was Alexander who is one of the main reasons for keeping Britain and France from aiding the South during the American Civil War. I don't have a site for back-up, but I went to an exhibit in Milwaulkee that showed the two's correspondence to one another. And the second is that Lincoln is the first president (and perhaps the first person in writing) to say/write "the United States is..." (which he began doing during and after the Civil War). Up until that time, because people were still used to thinking highly of the states' individual power and freedoms everyone typically said/wrote "the United States are...".
  • Lincoln had a son, Willie who died in 1862 of bilious fever, probably caused by contamination of the White House drinking water. Also, John Wilkes Booth's brother once saved the life of Abraham Lincoln's son.
  • He had a rather large wart on his nose
  • Yes, he had Marfane's Syndrome, I think it's called, where your arms are longer from finger tip to finger tip than your height. Causes joint problems and heart problems.
  • When he was young, after a sermon at church, he would often stand on a tree stump and mimic the sermon given by the pastor/minister. This is a more widely known fact, but he never joined a church and was rather against organized religion. He also said something(don't remember the exact quote) about wishing Brigham Young would just leave him alone.
  • He was accused of being two-faced and responded, "if I had two faces would I wear this one?"
  • He was on the $5.00 dollar bill.
  • He was the same height as me, 6'4".
  • Have ever gone to visit a special a place that was a part of your youth? I am having a tough time trying to sort of my now, and it is having to leave some thing that was always there, but it is the fact that I have only come to appreciate in the last while.I am having to leave this place that I am starting to miss already. I have learned a lesson, and that is to never wish time away, whether it is shitty or whether it is pure bliss, it all goes away at the same time. Some people belive that time flyes away when you are having fun, this is not true, because before one knows it, the blinking light on our hands blinks at the same rate for every one on Logan's run World
