Accidental Mysteries: 07.01.12


One of the most recognizable faces in American history is that of President Abraham Lincoln. From the most solemn and respected paintings and statues in Washington, DC to humble folk art carvings, Lincoln has been the subject of our affection since his assassination in 1865. Today, with Lincoln being depicted as a vampire hunter, I decided to take a look at Lincoln as others have depicted him.
