Or Forrest! He was a gambler and did the whole nine yards - silver buckles on the shoes, brocade vest, bay rum in the hair all nicely curled around his face. That was simply stylin' back then. At least two of his officers said he was the most beautiful man they'd ever seen. Nothing to be drawn from that at all. There was no question about Forrest's preferences anyway - he never missed a pretty face and always appreciated the ladies...especially when they ran out of their houses to see him and his troops in their nighties!

Yeah. Win Hancock was as famous for his perfect grooming and spotless white shirts as he was for cussing and being a badass general.

What possible historical difference would it make if Abe was a raving queen?
Little about the then and much about the now.

Depending on one's perspective, a gay/bi Lincoln is either trivia, a triumph for the LGBT community, or proof that the American Civil War was the original liberal assault on Southern manhood.

Knowing the internet, someone has written Lincoln/Booth slashfic where the assassination was revenge by a jilted lover and is desperate for proof.
