Believe It or Not - RUMORS of the Past Part 1

These are only few of the controversial issues about famous people and intriguing facts about historical events that may fascinate your senses as I am overwhelmed by the thought of traveling back in time... if only I have the power.

Not every detail of the past had  been written or documented. There are missing links that keep challenging our intellect up to this time. Countless mysteries that will remain unknown and inexplicable.

-According to Ms Sylvia Rhue's post in Huffington:

"Over 16,000 books have been written about Abraham Lincoln, our greatest president. Many of these books either allude to or specifically report on Lincoln's ambiguous relationships with men. Lincoln lived with and shared a bed with Joshua Speed for four years, and they remained friends years after they no longer lived together. He also had a close relationship with Captain David Derickson, who would stay with Lincoln overnight at the Soldier's Home (a retreat from the White House) when Lincoln's wife Mary left town. There were reports of Captain Derickson wearing Lincoln's nightshirt, and Lincoln has been quoted as saying, with a "twinkle" in his eye, "The captain and I are getting quite thick."

Although he fathered four children with Mary Todd, Lincoln's sexuality became a subject for debate of historians and scholars. His intimate relationship with men was believed to be an example of  "the closeting history" -such mystery and secrecy of historical figures like that of the 16th US President Abe Lincoln should be suppressed and hidden.
