Should his portrait instead be on the three dollar bill?
For history's sake, let’s examine the facts on both sides. Evidence he wasn't: he fathered four children with wife Mary Todd. Evidence he was: Lincoln shared his bed with the captain of his bodyguards, David Derickson. Lincoln was often seen frequenting a popular public restroom in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington DC. Lincoln loved the theater. Young Lincoln was often referred to as ‘the rail-splitter’ (I don’t know what that means but it sounds queer).
For the time being I have to call it a draw. A more interesting question is whether or not Lincoln was Melungeon.
