Was Abraham Lincoln really a vampire hunter?

Probably not. Or at least, if there was, there's no actual record of it.

But there are plenty of unusual facts about the 16th president of the United States that you probably didn't know -- like the fact that he was the first president to sport a beard.

He was like the ZZ Top of presidents... except while he's remembered for that beard, he didn't actually have facial hair most of his life.

Bearded presidents are still kind of weird -- there were only four others: Garfield, Grant, Harrison and Hayes, although several had mustaches and who could forget the mutton chops of Chester A. Arthur?
