According to Wikipedia “The epistolary
-style book is written as a biography of Abraham Lincoln
, based on “secret diaries” kept by the 16th President
and given to the author by a vampire
named Henry Sturges.When Lincoln is eleven years old, he learns from his father Thomas Lincoln
that vampires are in fact real. Thomas explains to his son that a vampire killed Abraham’s grandfather (also named Abraham Lincoln
) in 1786. Young Abraham is also shocked to learn that his beloved mother Nancy Hanks Lincoln
succumbed not to milk sickness
but rather to being given a “fool’s dose” of vampire blood, the result of Thomas’s failure to repay a debt. Lincoln vows in his diary
to kill as many vampires as he can. A year later he lures the vampire responsible for his mother’s death to the family farm and manages to kill it with a homemade stake.”In case you missed this valuable history lesson read more on Wikipedia.
