Random Lincoln Facts

  • Returning from New Orleans in 1828 by boat, Lincoln and a companion were attacked in their sleep by seven men, “with intent to kill and rob them.” As Lincoln emerged from a hatchway, an attacker “struck him a blow with a heavy stick … making a scar which he wore always”
  • Stephen Douglas called Lincoln “two-faced.” Lincoln responded: “I leave it to my audience. If I had another face, do you think I would wear this one?”
  • Lincoln had a high-pitched voice that could be heard over great distances. When excited, the pitch went higher still, and sometimes became unpleasant. Still, his voice was an asset because it could be heard by all the crowds that gathered outdoors to hear him speak. (Microphones did not yet exist.) For example, at least 15,000 people heard him give the Gettysburg Address and “acres of people” heard his first inaugural address
  • A dentist broke off part of Lincoln’s jaw bone while pulling a tooth — without anesthesia. The extraction may have taken place in Louisville, KY in Sept. 1841
  • Lincoln was several times the victim of domestic violence at the hands of his wife, Mary. (a) About 1860: Mary struck him “on [the] head with a piece of wood while reading paper in South Parlor — cut his nose — lawyers saw his face in Court next day but asked no questions” (b) Before 1861: Angry at his choice in meat for a guest, Mary “abused L. outrageously and finally was so mad she struck him in the face. Rubbing the blood off his face Lincoln and [the guest] left” (c) there are also records of Mary throwing coffee at him, throwing potatoes at him, chasing him down the street with a knife (once) or a broomstick (frequently), pulling out part of his beard, and of a strike to his face in his last weeks alive.

Cab Calloway

Hi De Ho! When I was just a wee bairn, about 5 years old, I saw Cab Calloway preform at the band-shell in Palisades Park in New Jersey. After the show the family met him and I sat on his knee while he played the piano. I’m certain that I never crossed his mind again, but that was a super important life moment for me! the man was amazing and is still a hero to me.

A small guide for people who are #newtowho.

(Open in a new tab to read it better)

There might be a few mistakes in the grammar as English isn’t my native language and I deeply apologize for that, but I think that everything is understandable. There might be mistakes in the syllabification (is that the correct word) too, because Adobe Indesign did that automatically and I forgot to change it.
