*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!
