Fact of the Day: Lincoln Ghost

While stories of Lincoln's ghost in the White House have been numerous, there was even a story of a photo of his spirit. A man named William H. Mumler apparently took a picture of Mary Todd Lincoln with the ghost of her husband. However Mumler was quite well known for taking ghostly photos, but P.T. Barnum went after him and ruined his career after artificially making his own ghost pictures.

  2. It's real? I would think that this is photoshop, but then phooshop doesn't exist.

  3. I´m becoming to be worried about this fact...Kisses:)

  4. Wouldn't it have been hilarious if the picture of Lincoln's ghost was grabbing himself a handful of one of Mary's boobies?
