Ep. 11: Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter

Did Abe use his famous ax for more than chopping trees? This surprisingly enjoyable film says yes. Below, find a few resources for further reading:

*The Library of Congress offers this extremely detailed timeline of Lincoln’s personal and political life.

*More about William Johnson’s life and career, as well as a record of his burial site at Arlington National Cemetery, can be found over at Find-A-Grave.

*We dug into a number of scholarly interpretations of the slavery-vampirism connection, and commend these three to all of you.

*Check out the novel on which the movie was based!

Happy Thanksgiving from Costume Drama Rewind, where we’re marking the holiday by reviewing the animated classic “The Mouse on the Mayflower.” Did the Pilgrims really get rescued from all their troubles by a mouse in a tiny hat? Probably not, but that’s also not the weirdest or least accurate thing going on with this little movie.
