  • both Abe & Mary were permissive parents allowing their children to run wild in the white house

  • once, Abe was pulling his toddler son in a wagon, the child fell out & Abe was daydreaming & never realized it 'til someone told him his child was back down the road

  • Mary Todd ran out into the street with a knife after Abe threatening to kill him

  • he loved the play "MacBeth"

  • the last act he performed as president was to pardon a young man with mental issues just prior to being sent out to the firing range to be shot tho I am unsure of his actual crime

When Elizabeth Sparrow wanted to get her pregnant stepdaughter married, she gave 5 gallons of whisky to a castrated man named Thomas Lincoln to marry her. Thomas was a mean drunk and not good to Nancy. After a year of marriage, she began to hate him. She met and fell in love with a man named Samuel Davis. Together they had a baby. He was given the name Abraham Lincoln.

Samuel Davis was a married man and just several months before the birth of Abraham, his wife gave birth to Jefferson Davis. Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis were brothers.
