History Schmistory, June 30: What Were They Thinkin’, Lincoln?

1865 - 8 alleged conspirators in assassination of Lincoln were found guilty. Little did they know, Abe is apparently a vampire hunter & reincarnated. Honestly?

This guy looks pretty ABel to me.

How now, brown cow?

History Schmistory, June 23: Penn & Lenn-i

1683 - William Penn signed a friendship treaty with Lenni Lenape indians in Pennsylvania. It’s the only treaty “not sworn to, nor broken”

Like honest Abe once said…”The better part of one’s life consists of his friendships.”

Why can’t we be friends? Wait, We Can!!!

Ludicrous Latin: Frena pro feris teneo

I brake for animals.
